Come along on an adventure into the heart of Sterling Forest! As we make our way to the summit of Sterling Mountain, we’ll traverse the Doris Duke Wildlife Sanctuary. This no-hunting zone is home to many native and migratory species, including rare invertebrates, birds, and plants!

We’ll spend a relaxing day in the woods, see beaver dams and unique rock formations, and  hike to a forest lake. On a clear day, we might even be able to see a gorgeous view of Manhattan!
