Great hike! We did the reverse way and highly recommend it. It was a good challenge at the rock scramble in the beginning and the walk down was a good cool down. An adult deer ran right past us which was cool. The flies were a little annoying, I would say bring bug spray. The path does get muddy in some areas, too.

Really good trial. We started from white and finish on red as other suggested.
Parking is very small but you can park on the side of the road. There was a lot of cars on Saturday but not many people on trail.
Take a bug spray!

Love this place!

Great trail to hit. Make sure you go during the week because parking is impossible on weekends. We took the white trail then when to the blue trail (white w blue dot) and finally finished on the red trail (white w red dot).

We took the route starting with the red trail blaze (edge of the parking area behind the restrooms) then followed that to the white. We went counterclockwise and followed the white, to blue, to orange, to red. This led us up the rock scramble- which seemed safer than climbing down. View from the top was expansive and so worth the climb! Really enjoyed this hike and would probably come back. Wear comfortable hiking shoes- lots of rocky terrain.

We had a really nice time. As Mary Cate suggested, we did counter clockwise (white, blue, orange, red) and I think this was great advice. Ascending the blue section was fine, but coming down would have been tricky I think.

Wear good shoes/boots as there are lots of spots with rocks to navigate vs. dirt path, and quite a few muddy stream crossings.

We did this hike in reverse (white to blue to orange to red) and given the rock scramble I think this is the way to do it. Really enjoyed the rock scramble and had a nice view at the top. Lots of small streams and waterfalls, and a couple really pretty larger ones. Not too busy on a Saturday afternoon. Trail is pretty well marked - a couple times we ended up off the trail and needed to backtrack to find the blazes again, but if you’re paying attention at the less trafficked/rockier points (very noticeable) you should be fine! We strolled along in no rush and it took us about 3 hours. At normal hiking speed it would probably take me a little under 2. Overall nice hike with some great viewpoints.

Great hike, so many options to do more if you want.

Started on red and finished on white. Nice trail, beautiful water falls. Scramble at the end was tough for the dog going down.

Did this towards the end of March. Lots of snow still. Recommend good boots. Took the white to blue, orange then red. Blue is a rock scramble. Beuatiful views at the top. Stayed for the sunset, so got caught doing the end of the trail in the dark. Thank goodness for the flashlight app. But you can't top that sky at night. Every bit was worth it. Going again this weekend.

First trail with this app. Dogs loved it.

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.

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

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.

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!

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!!

Easy to miss trail markers in some areas. Pay attention.
Parts of trail are slippery and steeper then expected especially if you’re carrying a heavy pack. Make sure you have enough water.

It's a nice trail. The loop is actually connecting 3 different trails in the park, the colors are white (I am not sure of the name), blue (7 hills trail) and red on white (pine meadow red on white). I got lost several times... When you start the trail, find the white trail first, so you can go up on the rocky part (blue trail), I think it will be a better way to go. When on the top, it's very nice vista view. Enjoy!

Fun trail. The view was nice.

Nice views! Parking lot was packed but there still weren’t many people on the upper part of the trail. Recommend it.

Great little day hike in Harriman. Nice vistas. Recommend starting out on the white trail so that you go up the rock scramble instead of down it. Up is not as bad as it looks. The trail is well marked overall. One or two spots you need to look carefully for the blue blaze.

Trail is nice but too rocky and confusing to follow, the trail paths are very small once you start ascending. I would not necessarily recommend this trail to friends.
