Hanging Lake Morning 2

Hanging Lake

The emerald waters of Hanging Lake are surrounded by high rocky cliffs. The hike to reach this beautiful Colorado waterfall is not long - only 1.2 miles - but gains over 1,000 feet during the ascent. Only about 7 miles from Glenwood Springs, it is a popular tourist destination, so arrive early. For this hike, I started up well before sunrise in order to arrive at first light.
