The plan: this hike will cover the western section of sterling forest we will try to make it up to the viewpoint of Greenwood Lake taking the red out looping around on a variety of trails.

The length: The hike will be about about 3 hours long

The terrain: The beginning part of the hike will have some stream crossings then we will escalate the side of the mountain coming close to the top of the Renaissance Festival running parallel to 17 going away from Greenwood Lake. We will then be at a decision-making point where we can travel farther out to the viewpoint or cut into another trail heading back.
