The trail is not easy. Take your time. Begin early in the day. But the hike is more than worth it. The views are beautiful and you have to see the beauty of the lake and waterfalls to appreciate it.

Excellent very challengling hike. In 1mile you hike up 2000 ft. You need really good hiking shoes. The lake is spectacular as are the views. As you near the top, there are railings because it is so steep. You need to be fairly athletic. It takes about an hour. It is very crowded in summer....fall is a good time to go. Just 15 min from Glenwood Springs

Several friends recommended we make the trek to Hanging Lake. It was a fantastic trip with spectacular vistas. Be ready for a little challenging sections of trail, but be ready to be rewarded for your effort. Make sure you go the extra distance to Gushing Rock.

Pretty good hike up hill for just over a mile to a beautiful lake with water falls. Its a nice, short hike, but crowded. Usually I like to do more strenuous, long hikes where it is just me and a few others alone with nature. I probably wouldnt go to Hanging Lake again and would only recommend going if you are driving by there anyway or are in the area.

A bit of a challenge to get up to the lake but totally worth every step once you get there. I didnt realize how pretty it would be there.. how aqua the water was, how lush the vegetation, and waterfalls everywhere!! You need to also make the left turn to go to Spouting Rock. Definitley bring hiking sticks if youve got them!!
