Hanging Lake is a crystal-clear, travertine lake located high atop the cliffs of Glenwood Canyon. The mile-long hike is steep and rigorous, but rewarding once you see the natural beauty that awaits you at the top. Hanging Lake is a geologic wonder and is popular with travelers for its awe-inspiring beauty and gentle Colorado waterfalls!
Suspended on the edge of Glenwood Canyon‘s cliffs, the clear turquoise lake and the waterfalls that spill into it are a breathtaking sight after the rigorous uphill climb. This precious natural wonder is one we all must work together to protect by respecting the rules.
