Go 7 miles east on I-70 from Glenwood Springs, CO.
Photo taken August 7, 2013.
Hanging Lake is at the end of a short trail (1.1 miles) that climbs over 1,000 feet. The trail climbs west from Glenwood Canyon and the Colorado River. It is one of the busiest trails I have ever been on. There were people from all over the world and of all ages and sizes. Despite the crowds, it was a wonderful experience and certainly worth the climb.
