We continued on our way stopping to take a few photos here and there.The trail didn't offer too much in terms of scenery nothing more than your normal dirt, rocks and trees. The trees did offer a great amount of shade from the sun.
A nice addition to the trail was a small stream of water that sat along side the trail.
After making our way up the trail we finally reached the stairs that would ultimately lead us to our final destination.
Hanging Lake is a beautiful place and an excellent hike! I'd recommend it for anyone, friends, family, kids, etc...While at Hanging Lake, hikers have the option to continue hiking up towards Spouting Rock. This is also a great sight to see. It is a brief hike with an excellent view of a waterfall that shoots out of the rocks above.
This was a fantastic hike! I'm sad to say that after 27 years of living in Colorado it had taken me this long to get up there. It is a MUST hike for anyone.
After returning to our vehicle we were back on the road headed towards Aspen, Colorado, for our trip to The Maroon Bells (No 14er but an excellent hike! Part 2 of 2).
