this is the number 1 hike in Colorado, can be very busy in the summer and they are going to start taking permits to go up, so plan ahead and don't miss this beautiful place.

Stunning hike in Colorado's White River National Forest. Although this is a short hike, the elevation can be challenging for inexperienced hikers. Absolutely worth it! Once you make it to the lake, take the path to the left to see the larger waterfall. Absolutely incredible!

Wow, this place lived up to all the hype. The hike was steep for sure - especially the ending but the best part is once you conquer the hardest part of the trail you are there. That's rewarding. We went on a Thursday morning in...More

Very convenient access off the main highway, there was ample parking with restrooms at the base. The hike may be short but with the altitude and elevation gain on this hike PACE yourself. I would rate this as a moderate hike for those people visiting...More

It will be cold then, but pretty sure the trail is open year round. The surrounding weather and roads would be the only limitations if it has snowed a lot. Check the roads with CDOT. Any precipitation on the trail would... More

Typically it is open year-round except for certain days for trail maintenance. Wintertime would possibly require the right equipment such as crampons and proper boots, clothes and poles. Hanging Lake is part of the white... More
