Hanging Lake Hike, Colorado (1080p HD)
Hiking to the stunning Hanging Lake, just off of highway 70, east of Glenwood Springs, Colorado. If your traveling to Denver via Highway 70, be sure to spend a couple of hours hiking to Hanging Lake as it is well worth the experience. The trail ascends steeply at certain areas, crossing a stream that runs the trails entire length. The hike took about 45 minutes, requiring a few stops to catch our breath (high altitude). This was one of the best hikes I have ever been on, and at the end of the video you can see why. Enjoy!

Hanging Lake is a lake in the U.S. State of Colorado. It is located in Glenwood Canyon, about 7 miles east of Glenwood Springs, Colorado and is a very popular tourist destination. The lake is reached via a trailhead located near I-70 in the bottom of the canyon. The trail follows Dead Horse Creek, a tributary of the Colorado River and ascends some 1,000 feet.
Early tales of the discovery of the lake tells of a man searching for gold in the canyon. The man found a dead horse at the opening of a gulch (the possible origin of Dead Horse Gulch). When he followed the gulch up through the steep hillside through the canyon he came around the backside of the lake. This is how he first saw the small bowl-like basin hanging onto the cliffs below.
In the years following the area served as a homestead, and a private family retreat until it was purchased by Glenwood Springs after the Taylor Bill was passed by Congress in 1910.
Following the purchase it began its long history as a public tourist stop, and later during the 1940s hosted a resort and cafe until the construction of Interstate-70 began in 1968.
In 1972 the trail and the lake were returned to the protection of the Forest Service as part of the White River National Forest, and has been an increasingly popular tourist destination since.
In 2011 the lake was named a National Natural Landmark by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar.
The fragile shoreline of Hanging Lake is composed of travertine, created when dissolved limestone from the Mississippian aged Leadville Formation (through which the Dead Horse Creek flows) is deposited on rocks and logs, creating travertine layers.[

Glenwood Canyon & the Drive to Hanging Lake, Colorado I-70
Here's a look at the scenic drive on Interstate 70 eastbound. I drove through Glenwood Canyon to the Hanging Lake Trailhead, then backtracked westbound to the next exit, where I u-turned and continued east, on to Avon and West Vail.

I made this trip in January 2018. Video shot with a Brinno TLC-200 Pro time-lapse camera mounted on my roof with a homemade magnetic case. I travel with two Brinno cameras - one facing forward, the other in reverse. Sometimes the reverse camera captures better video (fewer raindrops and bugs hit the rear-view lens).

Hanging Lake Hike - Glenwood Springs Canyon, Colorado 2014
Hanging Lake in Glenwood Springs, Colorado
Glenwood Canyon. Colorado
Glenwood canyon, Colorado, United States, 2005.
Glenwood Canyon is a rugged scenic 12.5 mi (20 km) canyon on the Colorado River in western Colorado in the United States. Its walls climb as high as 1,300 ft (396 m) above the Colorado River. It is the largest such canyon on the Upper Colorado. The canyon, which has historically provided the routes of railroads and highways through western Colorado, currently furnishes the routes of Interstate 70 and the Central Corridor between Denver and Grand Junction. The canyon stretches from near Dotsero, where the Colorado receives the Eagle River, downstream in a west-southwest direction to just east of Glenwood Springs, on the mouth of the Roaring Fork. Most of the canyon is in Garfield County, with the upper portion near Dotsero lying in Eagle County.
In 1906, the canyon provided the route of the Taylor State Road, a gravel road that was the first route for automobiles through the Colorado Rockies. The canyon also provided the route for the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad in the late 19th century. Through acquisitions, the line is currently part of the Union Pacific system. As Glenwood Canyon was one of the iconic scenic views along the California Zephyr passenger train, a monument to the dome car design was originally installed in the canyon. In the 1990s the monument was relocated to the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden to make way for the construction of Interstate 70.
The canyon is widely considered one of the most scenic natural features on the Interstate Highway System of the United States. Foot access to the canyon is available at four rest areas along Interstate 70 in the canyon. The Hanging Lake Rest Area (Exit 125) provides access to the canyon along a stretch where I-70 is concealed in the Hanging Lake Tunnel.
The canyon was formed relatively recently in Pleistocene time by the rapid cutting of the Colorado down through layers of sedimentary rock. The upper layers of the canyon are sandstone from Pennsylvanian and Mississippian. Sections of the lower canyon walls are made of Cambrian rock. The Mississippian layer that is prominent throughout much of the upper rim sections of the canyon is part of the Leadville Formation.
Glenwood Caynon Resort : Glenwood Springs, CO Campground
Glenwood Springs is hailed as one of the most walkable towns in America so it only made sense the team decided to set out on foot from Glenwood Canyon Resort to explore the city. Lucky enough to nab a campsite right on the Colorado River, this is a terrific campground we can recommend highly. The showers were clean, the campground was spacious, and the staff was helpful and welcoming.
From Glenwood Canyon Resort they were able to hop right on the Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail. It's only a two-mile walk into town, but the entire trail is 16 miles long. You could walk all the way to Hanging Lake if you have the time and inclination.
