Hanging Lake39.60165°N, 107.191997°W
Hanging Lake is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Colorado, and for good reason. There are few places in the world that can compare to this geologic wonder. The entire hike, round trip, is approximately 2.5 miles and about 2 hours of hiking time. But do not be fooled by the short distance, the hike to the lake is a rigorous uphill climb.
Leave your pets at home. Dogs are not allowed on the trail, at the lake, nor are they allowed to be left in vehicles at the trailhead.
