It's beautiful; it's a difficult hike but so worth it. When you get up there it's as if the waterfall is coming from the sky, like it's just hanging there beautiful. There's picnic spots at the top.

Karen's reply: yes it is beautiful, Robin. I'm not sure if you're referring to the waterfall at Hanging Lake itself, or the Spouting Rock waterfall which is just above it. They are both beautiful, but it seems like you might be referring to the Spouting Rock waterfall since you can stand right next to it. Even underneath it if you wanted to! Therefore, it would definitely look as though it's coming from the sky :-).

And this summer, (2014), is a better time than usual to see both waterfalls, since our mountains received a lot more snow than usual this past winter. As you mentioned, it's a difficult hike but completely worth it.

We were there in about mid May this year, so I'm adding a couple of my photos to show how both waterfalls looked then.
