Tough hour-long hike, but well worth it. I believe this was an elevation gain of around 1000 ft. There was also an interesting "spouting" rock behind the lake. Very busy trail, but very enjoyable.

This photo looks exactly like my photo! We hiked it and it rained on us a little going up, as well as while we were there. Not too bad, but some rocks can be slick! Be careful, however, well worth it to see this beautiful...More

One shouldn't miss this place if visiting Glenwood Springs, CO. The place somehow allows one to forget the ugliest of man-made destructions and appreciate God's beauty. What's a sight.

Hanging Lake was gorgeous. I really enjoyed the whole hike up but I do recommend a few tips. 1. Don't wear flipflops (my husband and I couldn't understand why so many people were...) 2. Wear bugspray (I got bit several times) 3. Don't go if...More

I've been everywhere in Colorado and this might be one of my favorites. Crowded on the trail but the reward on top and the view of the lake and the waterfall above it are spectacular.

Don’t count on having cell service. Neither my wife (Sprint) nor I (Verizon) had service back in April 2018. If I remember correctly l, we lost it even before we pulled into the parking area.
