“Impressive sight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We went up the trail not quite knowing what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised to find such a quiet and beautiful little lake nestled between the rocks. Even an Amish family had brought all their children up to admire this little heaven.

I will go back. Just so very beautiful. To many people at times but a must see. Not recommended for people out of shape.

the trail can be tricky when wet, other than that, enjoy the beautiful scenery and the end destination, the lake!

“Hanging Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Beautiful and worth the visit... respect the area... trashing the place is never appreciated! Stay on the trail and expect the hike to take you a while. be respectful of other hikers, some areas of the trail are narrow though and steep!

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Read about this on internet so decided to visit. You ascend 1000ft and I mean up. But easy enough to a degree. I had a whole lot of ice on the paths so it did make it trick in parts. Latched onto two mother with some kids on the climb up and down, kids were fine as they have no fear, the on mom and I helped each other as we climbed over rocks and trees so as not to do the steep ice path to the top. But it is all worth it at the end. It is so beautiful there, peaceful and resting and wonderful. The spouting rock just up from the lake is even more wonderful. Seeing water just sprouting out of the rock wall is cool. A good hour 15 min up and 45 min down. But it is so worth it. Easy access form the main road, makes it real easy to find.
