Grizzly Creek Trail
Hanging Lake Trail
Description: This popular trail climbs up along Dead Horse Creek, crossing seven footbridges on its steep route to the beautiful travertine lake. A few level stretches and shaded benches give hikers a place to rest. The final push to the lake is a set of steep stairs hewn into the rock. A boardwalk extends around the lake, giving a view into the turqoise-blue waters of native cutthroat trout. Waterfalls cascade into the lake through mossy overhangs. For an extra thrill, follow the Spouting Rock Trail above the lake to see water gushing straight out of a hole in the limestone cliff and enjoy the cooling spray.
Note: Because of its fragile ecosystem, visitors are not allowed to enter the water or climb on the logs in the lake. Please stay on the trail and obey posted signs in this unique and fragile environment.
