Hanging Lake area closed Monday through Wednesday for maintenance

The Hanging Lake Trail and parking lot will be temporarily closed again Monday through Wednesday this week, due to public safety while maintenance occurs with heavy machinery.

Any vehicles left in the Hanging Lake parking lot from the weekend may be towed. The ramp, parking lot and trail will reopen again for use Thursday morning.

Additionally, the Glenwood Canyon bike path will be closed from the Shoshone power plant to the Bair Ranch Rest Area during this time.

The closure is in place for public safety due to heavy equipment that will be operating in the area to accomplish maintenance work.
