The popular trail that leads to Hanging Lake in the Glenwood Canyon will be closed one or two days in May, June and September while the Eagle-Holy Cross Ranger District does maintenance aimed at protecting habitats along the trail. The dates the trail will be closed are May 25-26, June 13-14 and Sept. 10.


Maintenance for the trail includes moving large rocks, painting bridges, removing graffiti, adding new rock steps and creating a barrier system for protecting habitats.
