A fairly hard climb, but well worth the effort. When you realize that nothing much more than the power of water carved the Glenwood Canyon, you will marvel that the same water never caused Hanging Lake to simply vanish and become a full-fledged waterfall. Remarkable and thought-provoking.

The hike is spectacular, but very intense. Wear tennis shoes, a light jacket, bring water, and start early. Some weekend days are very busy, with many hikers.

Really enjoyed this moderate hike up to Hanging Lake along the creek. It was even nicer going a little further, 5 minutes, to the water falls coming out of the rocks above. Great way to cool off after hot hike. There are restrooms and picnic tables by parking lot. Get there early to beat crowds and get a parking place, fills up quick. Well worth the hike.
