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.

Nice trail. The roar of stony brook provides a nice background after a thaw. Trail can get wet and freeze in some spots.

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!!

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!

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.

Excellent hike. Beautiful views. Best to go counter clockwise. There is a steep section for an awesome view, but it appeared that it was much better going up the section than to go down it.

Medium hike difficulty wisw, awesome views, and lightly traveled even on a beautiful September day. There are a ton of offshoot trails nearby. I would recommend going counter clockwise. There is just a bit of scrambling, only one spot where markers were thin, on the white trail about 1/2 mile in, but not a big deal. You can buy a trail map at the trail head for $10.

Awesome, moderate hike. Such a pretty trail with a variety of terrain and a fun rock scramble. Took the white trail (if facing the back of the visitor center, trail starts to the right walking away from the trailhead map - hard to find at first) to the blue trail, up the awesome rock scramble to gorgeous views, continued on the blue to the orange to the red on white back to the parking lot. Must pay attention to markings - they're not always on the trees, many are painted on the rocks. Lots of trails intersecting but, as long as you pay attention, it's an easy loop to follow.

Recorded at 4+ miles, not 3.6. Can't wait to do it again.

Four stars only cause it's tricky with trail markers in spots and slows you down a bit... nice inclines small amount of scrambling... unexpectedly amazing view up top... a gem

definitely be careful of a section of steep rocks, and we were descending because we were going clockwise on the loop trail. probably not recommended with little kids,we had 2 girls and a boy between 4 and 9, and took us a good deal of work to get down. this is the part that felt a bit more difficult than moderate. if you have kids, go counterclockwise is probably the better option.

Only gets crowded when it's a holiday. Beautiful sights and interesting terrain. Rocks, bridges, waterfalls, streams; my dogs love hiking here- beware of the occasional black snake. See ya on the trail!

Trail was great. Markings are def a little further spaced apart than what you might be accustomed to but using common sense and your intuition you'll be fine. Different trails do intertwine but from my experience, we started out with the white markings which led into blue markings and then red ones. If you see on my recording, we took the long route at one point of the hike but made it back on the designated trail with no issues since I downloaded the satellite version of the map from the All Trails app before we started our hike. Most strenuous part was probably the somewhat steep ascending of some rocks which leads you up to some beautiful views and is roughly the half way point of the loop. Trail starts behind the Brook Reeves "bookstore". Enjoy.
