Started the hike on the yellow blazed Menominee Trail to the left (lake side) of the old ski slope. Fairly flat along the lake with packed snow or mud. The trail starts to climb after about a mile toward the AT shelter. We ended up taking the AT away from Black Mountain, doing the clockwise loop to the southwest of the lake. On the well-traveled section of the AT, the snow was fairly deep but there were enough tracks from other hikers so we didn't sink into the snow too much. The last section connecting Seven Lakes Pkwy back to Menominee Trail had not been used much so it was slow going. No clear views from "peaks" on this stretch of the trail as you are in the woods. Did not see anyone on the trail when we started at around 10:30 but there were a lot more people on the Menominee Trail when we came back (after noon). Hope to come back to do the rest of this trail.

Hiked a big loop around the lake (without seeing the lake very much). Snow was pretty deep. Mostly woodsy hike.

Stairs going up for the greedy people I guess

Great view at the peak, would be 5 stars but it's not much of a hike. Stairs on the trail and a road to the top strip it of being a 5 star.

Decent trail, but it's not a real hike. More of a walking trail. Lots of stairs and very close to the Bear Mountain resort. So if you prefer hiking in more remote areas then feel free to skip this one. That said, the view from the peak is decent. Just don't be a cheater and drive to the peak. Hike to the peak. This is All Trails. Not All Roads.

This was my very first hike! I found Reeves to be beautiful and very exciting. This was not a boring trail and even with the snow and ice it was more of a challenge. This was a great adventure!! Would definitely go back!

I took the red trail to orange to blue to white. Slippery in the winter, but totally worth the extra energy to keep from falling. This loop really has a little bit of everything from scrambles to waterfalls.

Cool views but you can drive to the top so it was pretty crowded.

Best winter hike.
Just don’t forget your microspikes!!

Nice in the winter, only saw a few folks the whole day.

this was a nice hike. you take the white to the blue on white to the orange and then the red on white. we had to double back a couple of times but luckily the map tracking helped get us back on track. the welcome center was closed as were the bathrooms so go before you get to the trailhead if you need to go. would definitely recommend this hike. The hardest part was the blue scramble up the rocks to get to the top but it's not too bad just some climbing to pretty great views.

Great hike on a beautiful January day. Lots of different terrain with some scrambles and great vistas. Definitely a redo.

Nice overnight spike camp experience

Great hike but very very icy on the Major Welch portion, be prepared if you come in the winter.

Did a solo hike here! Looking forward to going back with friends!

Great hike - strenuous - there was a lot of snow and ice when I went - be prepared and careful treading through ice. We came to a point at the end of the hike where it was a straight path of frozen water and had to maneuver very carefully to finish. Amazing visuals and changes in scenery.

Great trail, not far from NYC. Beautiful Island Pond is en route.

Fairly steep assent after walk along the lake . At the Tower trail in under construction and poorly marked .
Decent is not difficult- a lot of steps

great hike and views, just way too crowded

You can’t hike around the lake :(

I did this hike several weeks ago. Was nice and had a few challenging sections, but it was insanely crowded on a Saturday. So many tourists and the back end was all stairs down. We waited in a single file line to get down with all the people. It was a little crazy!

Great hike

We absolutely loved this trail. it was a fun mix of terrains with nothing too challenging at all. make sure you take the advice of the reviewer before me (Gigi Rong) regarding the direction in which you hike the trail as the section which requires you to do some scrambling is fun going up but would definitely be not so fun to go down. incredible sweeping views in addition to beautiful falls and foliage. The hike was definitely lightly trafficked too.. i really couldn't recommend this hike more!

Lots of rocks! I made it all the way to the top tower of the mountain, alot of people here only reviewed on did half. Total of 8 miles! Lots of bugs on the way down. Would definitely do it again.

Great hike with beautiful views! Make sure to follow the trail markers, we ended up missing the turn for the white trail and ended up on white with black by mistake....that added an extra few miles!!
