Hanging Lake

Starting on April 1st, a popular hiking destination is only allowing visitors to explore with a reservation. Beautiful Hanging Lake trail in Glenwood Springs, Colorado is now only allowing staggered shuttles to minimize the effect that hikers visiting the area have on the environment. 

Over 6,000 people have reserved permits for a slot. July is typically the most popular time of year to visit, but U.S. Forest Service officials say there are still opportunities to visit between May and October.
