Hanging Lake closures Wednesday and Thursday

May 24, 2016

Hanging Lake will be closed Wednesday and Thursday for trail maintenance.

The well-traveled, popular trail in Glenwood Canyon is closed while the Eagle-Holy Cross Ranger District does what it’s calling “heavy maintenance.”

The work over the two days will include moving large rocks and replacing a concrete foundation for a handrail below the staircase section of the trail.

The Colorado Department of Transportation will physically close the Hanging Lake exit 125 and off-ramp, located 10 miles east of Glenwood Springs on I-70. The Forest Service will have staff at the trailhead.
