Hanging Lake Trail to reopen Monday after repairs
August 15, 2010
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The popular Hanging Lake Trail in Glenwood Canyon is scheduled to reopen Monday after being closed since early May for repairs.
The $1.1 million repair project has given the trail a new boardwalk and railing leading up the final section of the hike. Some stone work has also been completed around parts of the lake.
White River National Forest public information officer Pat Thrasher estimates 1 million hikers had used the old boardwalk since it was installed in 1992.
Work will continue after the trail reopens to divert natural debris that has been flowing into the lake.
The trail will close again Sept. 17 to 19 so volunteers can make other improvements.
