Hanging Lake, east of Glenwood Springs. Bring a water bottle for each person. Head up the trail right after lunch at the latest to come down before it's getting dark. When you reach the top you'll see falls that drop into a turqoise lake that is clear enough to see the fish swimming in it. If you walk behind the falls you'll find the larger fall that drops into them. We refilled our water bottle in it. ---Beautiful! This was taken in August, so in the spring the falls should be more powerful.

Hanging Lake

Hanging Lake is the most gorgeous waterfall in Colorado! The hike is difficult the closer you get to the falls but the nice thing is that it has markers throughout the trail to show you how much further you have to go. Once you get to the waterfall there are a lot of areas you can explore. You can hike around and to the top of Hanging Lake where there is another waterfall. This is a must if you are in the Colorado area!
