    Very easy and pretty crowded hike (at least around the Reeves Meadow Visitor center). The plus was that we saw lots of wildlife.

    Intended to do a 6-7 mile trail run. Although I studied the map provided here, I did not buy one at the ranger station near the trail head. The maps seemed overpriced, but there are lots of interconnecting trails in this beautiful state park. Ended up doing a very tough 11.2 miles. Some on beautiful groomed trails, some fire-access roads, some on primitive, poorly marked trails. Fortunately I had the time and energy, but next time I guess I'll buy the official map. If it's hot, be sure to carry plenty of water.

    This trail takes you through some of the most scenic terrain of the very remarkable Harriman Park. I generally do it in the reverse direction so as to quickly get to the scenic views over both lakes, Sebago to the West and Pine Meadow to the East. Make sure you have the up-to-date Harriman maps, since things do change and there are many lovely offshoots to these trails. And don't forget to do the stunning hike up from the Reeves Meadow parking area just a couple miles south of this trailhead on Seven Lakes Drive. It follows the lovely brook (currently a raging torrent after the rains) up to Pine Meadow Lake. You can make a circular route by taking trails left and right of the brook and going over the surrounding mountains. The whole area is full of scenic overlooks. The best hiking I have found so close to a major U.S. metropolis.

    Trail is beautiful but very poorly marked! Very difficult to distinguish this trail from other trails it crosses.

    This is a delightful trail, much of it in close proximity to the gurgling brook. It is varied in the terrain, from well demarcated paths which are excellently and tastefully maintained by the State Park management, to rock scrambling. Trail blazes a little confusing at times. Carry a map and a compass. And be careful not to land up on the 7 mile hike when all you intended was to do the small (3 mile) loop to the lake and back!

    I didn't do the 13 miler, but went up to the Lake and kind of looped back to the visitor center going a longer way around (can't remember the name of the trail.) The lake is gorgeous and there are great picnic spots. Bet it gets pretty packed on a nice weekend.

    The Reeves Brook Visitor Center is one of the most popular trailheads in Harriman Park. Part of this popularity is due to the many different loops available and one can vary the length of a hike easily. My favorite loop includes the Raccoon Brook Hills Trail which has nice views and tends to be little used. From the south end of Diamond Mt, on a clear day, one can look south and see the Manhattan skyline. This trailhead is crowded on weekends.
