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 hiking trail. My watch had the trail at about 8.6 without the offshoots shown on the map. Diverse terrain with no specific scenic outlook but overall a fun trail. Saw a few small waterfalls and the trail starts at a large lake.

Beautiful hike and as described moderately challenging. Apple Health app said we did about 120 flights, which is spot on for the elevation indicated. Ascents were enough to get the blood pumping but nothing crazy. Also came across a mid-19th century cemetery! A surprising amount of streams and waterfalls which made for some gorgeous photos and really helped this hike stand out. Would definitely hike it again!

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).

Beautiful sceneries, exciting hikes through cliffs and river view stop points large enough for having a snack. I loved it. Perfect for moderate to high level workout. climbing sticks make it much easier to pass.

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.

Winter Hike right after the storm where we end up with about 3 feet of snow and completely wet, but the views were amazing...

Started at the Bear Mountain Toll House early in the morning. The first part of the Camp Smith trail is very steep in places, with a lot of rock scrambling, but there are a few nice views of the Hudson along the way. It's not as well traveled as the latter part of the trail leading up to Anthony's Nose, and there were a couple of times when it was a bit of a challenge to find the blue markings. After you hit the parking area closer to Anthony's Nose you are about 2/3 of the way there, but the hardest part is still to come. Lots of rocks on the way up to the peak, with a few scenic overlooks. The view from Anthony's Nose is worth all the effort, however. Just spectacular.

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.

Bring some good waterproof boots!!!

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.

Great views of lake and amazing with the snow!

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.

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.

Well worth great hiking trail with nice views ⛰

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.

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

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

Lots of steady climbs and views. Snow and ice will make you pay extra attention to your steps. Cool rocks.

Great trail!!!

I love this hike. It has a fair amount of scrambling and the trail itself is rocky. I would suggest ankle support and good traction footwear especially if it is wet. Nice payoff at Anthony's Nose. Beautiful Spot. Good workout.
