Trail

Overview

Every bit of this hike is magical. The trail is rugged and rocky with great views. Once you get to the top, the lake and the waterfall above it make the pain of the climb worth every bit! I've never seen water so clear!

Short Run: A paved walking path will take you the short distance from the parking lot to the base of the trail leading up to Hanging Lake.

Gem Type: Waterfall
