Hanging Lake made an appearance on the Huffington Post on Thursday as one of “The West’s 9 Most Spectacular Waterfall Hikes.”

“Don’t miss this amazing view of cascading waterfalls surrounded by pine tree-lined cliffs,” the article says. “If you get a little warm on the hike, cool off with a quick splash from the waterfall at Spouting Rock.”

Marianne Virgili, CEO of the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association, said Hanging Lake is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Glenwood area.

“We see upwards of 5,000 visitors a month in our welcome center, and one of the big questions they ask is how to get to Hanging Lake,” she said.

As many locals know, Hanging Lake is so popular that parking becomes an issue. This is mentioned in the Huffington Post article, which advises visitors to hike the trail on a weekday or early in the morning.

Hanging Lake was the only Colorado hike mentioned on the list, which also included waterfalls from Oregon, Arizona, Washington and California.
