DescriptionHanging Lake is a perennial favorite, accessed year-round from Glenwood Canyon, with its trailhead about ten miles west of Glenwood Springs. Stunning waterfalls descend into a limestone lake teeming with trout. It’s a mile to the top and 1000 feet up, and takes about an hour and half round-trip. Five minutes beyond the lake is Spouting Rock, which is not to be missed once the lake is attained.
