Trailhead: Reeves Meadow. Reeves Brook trail with gorgeous streams and waterfalls to Raccoon Brook Hills, rock scrambles and nice views, climbed the Pulpit and met the HTS. Nice sights up to the Russian Bear cliff, took HTS and joined the 7 hills. On the HTS someone had done some great trail work. This hike is approximately 1 hr from downtown NYC by train or car.
The trail is very easy to access, and fairly well marked. The river, small waterfalls and the views from the top of the trail offered some great photo ops. While most of the trail is dog friendly, there are one or two spots that were very difficult for our dogs to navigate, due to the steepness, rocks and height of the drops. Great trail, really close to NYC, but we definitely wouldn't have brought the dogs if we had hiked it first.
It's a nice little loop that offers some pretty good vantage points , we took the white trail to the blue trail and found some pretty cool cliffs with some nice veiws up there. Probably more of a fall hike than anything else, the foliage is really what makes it beautiful
Beautiful hike with amazing autumn views. Started on the white trail in the early morning which was a good warm up, then onto the blue with a nice short verticle rock climb. Made a left onto the orange trail and finished up along the water on the red. Started just after 8 am and it was peaceful with almost nobody on the trails. After 10 am when I finished the parking lot was packed and cars were parked up and down the street. I can see why the area is so popular! My suggestion is get there as early as possible if you're looking to hike without a lot of people around. I would come back and spend more time taking in the views.
Great loop if done on a weekday (or way-off-season). Beautiful views, and easy mileage overshadowed by dense crowds...
Such an amazing hike!!!!!!! Breathtaking views.
