Daily staff report

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Due to extensive trail work both the Hanging Lake trail and parking lot will be closed to the public all day Saturday.

Staff from the Eagle/Holy Cross Ranger District will be assisting the Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers. Work will include installing new benches along the trail, improving the Spouting Rock Trail above the lake, completing other improvements on the main Hanging Lake Trail and erecting barriers to protect the delicate wetland between the lake and the falls. This project is a continuation of several years work by RFOV and the Forest Service to improve conditions on the trail.

“We could still use more volunteers on Saturday to help us continue to maintain and improve this world renowned resource,” Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers Director David Hamilton said. Those wishing to volunteer for this project will find more information at http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/o/50413/p/salsa/event/common/public/?event_KEY=83209.
