This trail follows along a stream that feeds Sterling lake. The trail goes through a deep hollow lined with tall Hemlocks. Once you get out of the hollow you come to Sterling Lake. From the north shore of the lake you get great views of Sterling Ridge and the fire tower. After following along the lake shore to the southern end you get on the Orange trail. At this point you start your climb to the top of Sterling ridge. Along the way you will pass some very nice springs. Once on top you pick up the Sterling ridge trail, which follows the ridge back to the trail head. Along the ridge you'll pass some great view points of the surrounding area.
