Gorgeous views along the way but the final stretch of this trail (down to the point) is poorly, or not at all, marked. Very frustrating to find a trail that has had he markers removed. Glad to have finished my 12ster but would like to see the LGLC work on the markers.

Absolutely stunning. A picture perfect day. Trail is broken in despite several feet of snow. I used my poles and micro spikes and didn’t have any problems slipping/sliding. Can’t wait to go back!

Awesome trail with beautiful snow.

Great Views. Took Yellow Undercliff Trail all the way back instead of the Cornish Trail. Snow on trail was packed down nicely except from the upper ruins north on the blue trail to the red trail junction on the breakneck trail. I was the first through there. Snow was a foot deep in most places.

A long hike but much quicker than one would expect. The 14 mile length is deceiving, a slow hiker like myself being passed by most on the trail took about 9.5 hrs. Not a problem for a summer day hike.

Trail is crowded in the summer but well maintained and of a modest grade as far as high peaks trails go. Few to no views until you get to the alpine zone. Great views from the baren summit of course.

Awesome hike. Really hard and soooooo windy at the top!

Great trails but really need snowshoes in the avalanche pass , be well prepare in winter . A lot of « lean-to » near the trails. Enjoy !

Great hike! Great view!

very nice and peaceful walk, not really hike, along the river. the river views were amazing

Nice 2 day backpacking trip. It starts pretty steep and then eases out to the top of Hunter Mountain. Views at the top of the tower are breathtaking. The back loop is much easier with one water point on the way down and then a river at the bottom.

Micro-spikes were very helpful, as snow was packed down and frozen into ice. Nice hike, saw 4 or 5 people out with dogs, most weren’t leashed. Lovely views.

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.

I finally made it to the summit as the conditions were right. It’s a nice hike with decent views along the way.

Very nice hike . Good parking at trail head . Initial
climb was about an hour and a half to some very
nice distant views south and east . The rest of the full
Loop is a gradual decent some of it rocky . Mid February
the creek - Breakneck Brook was full w great
sound effects . Went early not crowded at all .

Great hike

Love the scrambles and the moderate to difficult areas which always keep the hike interesting. And then there are the views...

This hike wasn’t bad at all but we had to break trail to the summit and back out to the parking lot. We didn’t make it to summit, we were a couple hundred feet short. We kept getting our snowshoes caught on things buried underneath the snow during the final push, so we turned around and headed back out.

Hiked on 1/28.

The snow around the trail melted, but the trail itself was pure ice because of all the snow pack on the heavily used route. Microspikes recommended, otherwise easy hike

My 3rd hike(started this past summer) and 1st winter hike ever. I consider myself fit and fairly healthy. I haven’t done any conditioning in several months though. I decided to take this range on with a group. My legs felt like tree stumps most of the hike, but I made it through the whole range. There were some areas that were difficult but overall, it wasn’t bad.

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

Saw bear tracks, wet on the rocks along Slant Rock trail. Beautiful views.

Surreal! Went backpacking for 3 days and enjoyed every moment. One foot in front of the other was my mantra for a whopping 30 miles in 3 days. Getting to the top was incredibly rewarding in many ways.

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.

This was my third time doing Tabletop. It was a nice hike in the winter with the packed snow

Loved this hike...so serene hiking along the Housatonic river. The day I was there the Falls at Bulls Bridge were frozen over with ice...gorgeous one lane covered Bridge. The hike up Ten Mile Hill was pretty easy with just enough incline to hey your heart rate up.
