Smugglers Notch Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Arguably the most scenic body of water in the Green Mountains, Sterling Pond’s long, picturesque shoreline provides many views of Mount Mansfield and other nearby peaks. Although surrounded by ski areas, the frequently visited pond lies nestled in a secluded basin, seemingly far removed from civilization. Most visitors stop at the pond’s western shore. For a fuller, quieter, and more enjoyable hike, take the loop around the pond and add side trips to Spruce Peak and Elephants Head Cliff."

This is a great hike with wonderful views. It's a great workout, too! It was a beautiful day and we saw many people with happy dogs.
