Sterling Forest Bare Rock Hike on June 5, 2011

The Smoke Rise Lake & Environmental Committee, and more specifically Ken Bitz, request that you Save June 5th, 2011 for a hike to Sterling Forest's Bare Rock.

We last visited Sterling Forest on May 17, 2009 to visit the Fire Tower. That was a spectacular hike with  breath-taking panoramas. [Note to self: I need to share with you my photos from that hike...]

Ken proposes a similar visit to Sterling Forest, with a hike along the new orange trail that goes to Bare Rock, which offers a fantastic view of Greenwood Lake. It is about the same difficulty as the hike to the Fire Tower.

Here are details for this spring hike to Sterling Forest's Bare Rock Trail:
