“Anytime of year will be worth the hike.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2010

Summertime the trail is a bit crowded but the scenery is well worth the hike. Winter is a much more intimate experiance. You still have the green water but also have large amounts of ice hanging down were there are waterfalls. Just beautiful! Be forwarned the trail is trecherous in the winter. Lots of ice. I wore ice fishing cleats and still slipped coming down the trail.

“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2009

If your in GS you have to hike up the see Hanging Lake. It's 1.5 miles up and I mean up. Theres warnings at the bottom of the trail advising that it's a strenous hike and to take food and water. There not lying about that and yes I though 1.5miles up big deal and went up with nothing but a camera. I would listen to these warnings next time for sure. With that I would'nt miss this hike for the world take your time and enjoy this gem. Dont miss out on this one.

“Absolutely beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2006

The hike to Hanging Lake takes about an hour and is definately a work out, but it is well worth the effort. Fortunately there are several places along the trail where you can stop and take a breather. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with bad knees though because the beginning and end sections of the trail are very rocky. And make sure you don't miss spouting rock behind the lake.
