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.

This was a wonderful trail to hike and I over all enjoyed it! It left me exhausted and feeling accomplished, considering that hiking is a new activity for me. I did this trail with my dog Bailey, who is an Australian shepherd which is a medium sized dog breed with a LOT of energy, and she did great as well, although this trail maybe difficult for smaller dogs considering there are a few scrambles although they could most likely do it in my opinion. Overall it was a fun day hike that left me wanting to do more hikes in the near future.

P.S. If you are planning to do this hike or hiking in generally with your dog bring lunch for him or her and water as they get hungry and thirsty as well. Also a plastic bowl to hold their water and food in!

We started out for a later afternoon hike, our first hike here, and decided to do this little loop. Problem was that where this loop connects to the Harriman State Park Lake trail isn't clearly marked. We wound up leaving this loop and embarking on the lake trail without knowing. Thank heavens we asked campers at the lake how to get back...or we would have been on a 17 mile loop, in the dark!!! Could have actually been pretty dangerous as we hadn't plan for nightfall. We made it back as it was just getting dark and had in fact begun raining. Otherwise, it would have been a nice hike. They really have to mark it better!

The river area is great. The views are decent. The trail is barely a trail and poorly marked.

This trail was awesome! I hiked with my dog and he absolutely loved it...we did white to blue to orange to red on white...the blue trail had a scramble that was a little tough and we had to go slow going up..maybe not for all dogs! Lots of nice views and not too crowded!

Lots of little streams and several nice views. Was a good challenge for me a little too difficult for the people in my party. Some steep areas and rock scrambles. Only saw a few people at 7 by 10 it was moderately crowded.
