Hanging Lake Trail to be closed for repairs

Just noticed this news:

vaildaily.com/article/…

Vail Daily News and Denver Post report that White River National Forest has announced that the very popular Hanging Lake Trail in Glenwood Canyon will be closed for much of the summer for repair/renovation of the trail and boardwalk. Several alternative hikes are suggested.

As summer travel season approaches, I thought I'd bump this FYI

we miss the re-opening by a few weeks. Any word that they're ahead of schedule and will be open early at all? We skipped RMNP due to their construction up there this summer too, now this one. Any other ideas of places to visit in Glenwood besides the Caverns and Hot Springs Pool.

We drove through RMNP 2 weeks ago from Estes to Grand Lake and only experienced a 10 minute wait (if that).

Government project... ahead of schedule? HA!

You could tube the Colorado river thru the Glenwood area.
