Everyone In Colorado Must Visit This Epic Waterfall As Soon As Possible

Colorado is home to several stunning waterfalls: Seven Falls… Bridal Veil Falls… the waterfall at Casa Bonita… the list goes on and on! Quite possibly the most beautiful of them all, however, are the waterfalls over stunning Hanging Lake.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

What makes this waterfall particularly spectacular? The rare turquoise color of the water is caused by travertine deposition that was originally created by dissolved limestone from the Mississippian Period Leadville Formation.

Not only are the Lake and waterfalls stunning, but the hike itself is out-of-this-world. In fact, according to Visit Glenwood Springs, the hike to Hanging Lake is one of the most popular in the entire state—which is really saying something. Visit Glenwood also provides thorough directions to this natural wonder, a list of things to pack, and what to expect on your adventure.
