Hanging lake is beautiful and definitely worth the hike. Wear good shoes and micro spikes are helpful. Don’t forget to hike to Spouting Rock!

Well worth the 1.2 mile hike in rather steep, rocky and occasional treacherous terrain! Stunning scenery! beautiful turquoise waters and wonderful waterfalls!

1.2 miles of steep terrain. Not a quick trip need at least 3 hours to enjoy. Plan on walking sticks and hiking shoes plus bring plenty to drink to stay hydrated!

It is truly one of nature’s more beautiful creations indeed! It is breathtaking! But the hike to get there is not for the weak or the weary, especially in March when there are icy snow patches and slippery mud. I fell twice, but was determined...More

My wife and I decided to hike up to the lake during a snow storm because we knew it wouldn't be crowded. We were at the lake for an hour by ourselves, and most of that time the snow stopped so it was unreal. Go...More
