This was very nice short hike for over 65 in moderate condition with minor leg and knee issues and worth the drive in. As a note, my wife and I always take hiking poles so if there are any more difficult stretches we feel comfortable,...More

Sterling Falls Gorge is a great place to hike as the trails through it connect with others and ultimately the Appalachian Train Chain. This spot is a sylvan gem with soft pine needle strewn paths where one can view wild flowers, fallen leaves and if...More

Easy Okey hike. Nothing is really spectacular. Just good for an evening walk. You can explore the near by area too. There are maps available

Lovely little hike down and following the falls. It is a little hard to find, dirt road, few signs but a nice 1 hour side trip. You can hike other areas there as well. Very lovely with the fall colours.

Wonderful walk, not too strenuous, well guided. We took our Newfound dog which was scary, I was afraid he would jump off a cliff, but the view was extraordinarily beautiful and well worth the hike!

Dogs are everywhere in the area. I saw no signs indicating dogs are not welcome. It's a beautiful spot - enjoy it with your dog.
