Our Sterling Forest Trails Map features more than 175 miles of marked trails in Sterling Forest State Park and nearby parklands, including more than 18 miles each of the Appalachian Trail and Highlands Trail. The map is printed in vibrant color on waterproof and tear-resistant Tyvek, and all trails include detailed junction-to-junction trail mileage numbers, making this map a must-have for exploring Sterling Forest State Park.
This 2020 revision includes the latest trail additions and relocations. The most significant trail change is the addition of nearly 7 miles of newly-constructed multi-use trails. Further updates to the map include the addition and adjustment of several parking lots and the addition of several newly-protected lands.
