Reed Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"The trail provides wonderful access for day hikes or overnight treks into jagged granite peaks, rock walls, glaciers, and lakes in the heart of the Talkeetna Mountains. An annual pilgrimage for many Anchorage and Mat-Su hikers, the Reed Lakes Trail leads into the heart of the Talkeetna Mountains, a land of jagged granite peaks, rock walls, blocky boulders, glaciers, and cirque lakes.
The trail makes a great long day hike, but there are plenty of good campsites near the lakes and on the benches above them. Rock climbers use the trail to get to good climbing areas."
