Easy trails, but the map from the office isn't the best. Great place to go hiking alone because it is moderately trafficked.

Sterling Ridge Trail and Long Pond Iron Works. Lots of history to be seen. Pre civil war furnaces and water wheels easy to find as well as garbage and broken glass by the mine hole from teens. Rest of the trail is immaculate.

This is very nice place to moderate hiking place. Don't miss Green wood lake view that is most beautiful place to see. It takes one and half hours from Sterling forest state park information center. There is a little up and down in this trail but not too hard. I will definitely be back with my family.

This was a nice hike and a nice area. I've been to Harriman many times and never went over to Sterling State Forest. The woman at the visitor's center was very nice and very knowledgeable. Hunting season is in full effect right now so she told me which areas may be more prone to seeing hunters. I was on the ridge trail to see the fire tower (which was a great view) and I also went on the orange trail to get a view of one of the other lakes, which I would recommend. Well marked trails. I will definitely be back.

Went in April 2015 and it wasn't very well maintained or marked. Perhaps they will perform maintenance later in the season as there was still a lot of runoff and the trail was rather swampy. Small bridge across Jennings Creek was flooded with no safe crossing within a short walk - had to take boots off and wade across.
