Mt. Sterling is in Smoky Mountain National Park.  The hike is rated difficult because of the elevation gain.  The gain is continuous and steady with no severely steep sections.  Along the way the forest changes from oak to red spruce/Frasier fir on the summit.  There is a 60 ft. steel tower on the summit which offers some of the best views in the park.
