“Every raves about this”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I tried to make it to the top but my grandson fell and it was believed he broke it so after making it half way we came back down.
The "improved" trail was difficult for this senior citizen but I truly enjoyed all the great people doing the climb with us.
I hope to finish the last half this year.
It is suppose to be well worth the rocky and steep climb bring good shoes and water

“Still looking GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

A very relaxing view after a long hike up. They now have plenty of benches to sit on to take it all in too. Along the trail up you have options to sit on rocks etc in the shade. Be sure to take water! There are seven bridges the keep crossing the cool stream along the way. DON'T forget to go the extra 50ft to the Spouting Rock just above the lake. Many don't notice the sign or mistake it for a 'Keep out' sign. Great photo op!

“Crystal clear”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

What a beautiful lake. It is so clean and pristine.
The waterfalls just bring a special touch to the lake.

Let's keep it clean. Follow the rules and let many generations to come to still be able to see this beautiful place.

“Great Family Hike!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Beautiful hike all of the way up. Too bad you can't take a dip at the top. Our family has three children under the age of eight and we did not find it so challenging.

“Great Activity with a beautiful outcome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

A highly recommendable activity for the entirefamily. The hike can be difficult. There are some very steep sections of the trail; highly recommend good sneakers or trail shoes. Hanging Lake is very pretty once at the top. Great place for a Family Holiday Photo!
