Trail was pretty difficult for me. Moved to CO from Indiana and am still destroyed by altitude though. Still one of my favorite hikes I’ve done here. Hanging lake is so unique and absolutely gorgeous and 100% worth the climb.

Moderate my butt lol. For a 900ft above sea level land dweller, this trail was hard. It is basically all rock and a straight incline up the side of the mountain. I survived it though. Yay me! And got some great pics to prove it!

This was an amazing trail! Steep in spots and a lot of very tall rock 'stairs'. If you're out-of-towners, like us-- keep in mind the altitude and physicality of this trail WILL affect you! There are plenty of places to rest along the way. Once you get to the top, it's all worth it! Bring your camera, the views are super!

Steep climb, scenic, and the lake is beautiful. Wife and I did this round trip in 1 1/2 hrs. We started at 9 am, by the time we were leaving the lot it was packed. No way back onto 70 heading east, 3 mile ride back west for the u turn. Worth the trip!

Absolutely beautiful! Kind of steep in some areas. Def wear appropriate shoes and clothing.
