Review of Hanging Lake Trail

This past summer I helped my friend move back home to Kentucky from California. As we passed through Colorado we decided we needed to get out and enjoy some of scenery. This place happened to be directly off of the interstate , so we thought we would check it out. Thinking it would be a quick hike, we neglected to bring water. This proved to be a mistake , turned out to be 2 mile hike up to the top of mountain. Not gonna lie , it's a pretty intense trek. Turned out to be well worth the mild dehydration though ,because the top of the trail is absolutely stunning. Not only are you able to see nothing but the Rockies for miles and miles , there's also this Crystal clear blue lake with an amazing waterfall. Very utopian-esque

Breathtakingly beautiful! The trail is not very long, but it is steep. However, most of it runs along a lovely stream, and through primarily wooded terrain, so it remains cool even on a hot day. The trail does tend to get crowded, so you may want to set out early in the morning. The emerald colored lake makes the hike well worth it!

I have made this very steep hike many times in my life. It used to be so pristine and clean. Everyone knew to stay out of the beautiful water and off of the cliffs. Not so much now. Please take only pictures! If we abuse this area any more, pictures are all we will have left of Hanging Lake. Thankyou

A beautiful hike to a beautiful lake. The trail is well maintained and marked. Take a few minutes to follow the trail that goes behind the lake for a breathtaking veiw of the lake and surrounding valley. You won't be dissappointed!

Best hike we have done so far in CO. The lake with its semi frozen fountain is def worth it! Don't hesitate ...if you enjoy hiking..this is a must -do.
