Hanging Lake

Summit County - Eagle County - Clear Creek County

Hanging Lake fills a 1.5-acre shelf suspended from the walls of Deadhorse Canyon, a side canyon north of Glenwood Canyon. It’s fed by natural springs and the fan of Bridal Veil Falls. This National Natural Landmark was formed by a geologic fault that caused the lakebed to drop away from the valley floor above. Layers of travertine comprise the lake edge and give the water its turquois color.
