About the Map Makers
The production of the Sterling Forest Trails map set, much like our other trail maps, was a great collaborative effort involving many volunteers, parks partners, and Trail Conference staff. Created over the course of a couple years and with an enormous number of volunteer hours, this map set is one of the biggest single map projects the Trail Conference has undertaken. Read more about the primary contributors to this map set.
Special thanks to volunteer project manager, John Mack, and all the other volunteers and park partners who helped produce this map revision. The map was also produced with support from Campmor, an outdoor store and retail partner of the Trail Conference.
