Notes

This popular trail accesses Hanging Lake high up in Glenwood Canyon. This lake contains crystal clear water originating from high above in the Flat Tops Mountains. There is an interesting falls that gushes from a hole in the canyon rock above the lake, called Spouting Rock. Water from Spouting Rock cascades down and empties into the lake. There are many photo opportunities at the lake and the entire way along the hiking trail.
