Snowshoe and spike up to Hanging Lake

  • Mar 6, 2014 · 7:00 AM
  • Glenwood Canyon

Folks we have done this the last two years and it's amazing. We drive to Glenwood in the morning and snowshoe that afternoon. We snowshoe on Friday. And now for the treat. On Saturday we stop and claw (you do need spikes for this) our way up to frozen Hanging Lake. Two years ago every thing up there was frozen. Last year everything was covered with snow. It's a really great time and you don't have to deal with the hords going back on Sunday.

To reserve your room (and I have a deal with them) call the Cedar Lodge Motel at

Don't forget to remind them that you are with our group. Contact other members in the comment section if you want to share a room

Also we'll carpool as much as we can. More details on that later.

    Spot open. Some stitches to be removed on Friday. I am sure it will be a lovely trip.

    If there is anyone that can't make it and we can get in on this, please let me know. I am with a +1. We could carpool up on Friday morning.

      Blue/Jacquelyn: thanks for your replies.

    Scott...Where are the details on the car pool to Glenwood? What time do we meet in Glenwood for Thursday's snowshoe trip and where do we meet? We need to know when to leave Denver so as to not miss your time line.

    Anyone interested in car pooling from the I70/Morrison Junction Park and Ride?

    March 4, 2014

    I won't be able to join you, have a family member in the
    ICU, have fun!

    I may not be able to leave Denver until Friday morning due to work. Scott, what time will Friday's snowshoe start and where can I meet you/group? I will attempt to make it on time to join the group. Anyone wants to car pool Friday morning?

    February 17, 2014

    • Ann Y.

      Mindy, I am interested in going up Friday morning. Is this something you are still considering? Have you made room reservations?

      Hi Ann, I have already made room reservation for Fri night. We can still car pool to glennwood but I am stopping in Silverthorne on way back to denver for a few hours. Maybe you can still catch a ride with other members on the way back (?) I can also call to see if motel will allow change to 2bed if you want to share. Lmk[masked]

    Hi Scott, I can't snowshoe on all three days, just Friday. What time will Friday's snowshoe start? Where do we meetup ? address/landmarks to trail ?

    March 4, 2014

  • Jacquelyn

    Since there are so many that can't stay for Saturday's hike up to Hanging Lake maybe we should form a group that will do the hike up to Hanging Lake on Friday also......just a suggestion :-)

    • Julie

      I decided to work this week : (

      February 26, 2014

  • Julie

    Can someone clarify the dates of this please? The date listed says Thurs, March 6. The description says Fri/Sat... Is this a Thurs overnight to Friday hiking Hanging Lake hike or a Friday overnight and hiking Hanging Lake on Sat?

    February 25, 2014

    • brent k.

      there are some people that are going up Thursday and will be meeting Scott and doing a hike/snowshoe that day then there will be others going up Friday as well doing another hike/snowshoe. The hike to hanging lake is happening on sat. Hope that clears up your confusion

      February 25, 2014

    • Julie

      Yes, bummer. I work Sat so that doesn't work. Thanks

      February 25, 2014

  • Carey

    I can't make Saturday either :( Was so looking forward to this but I wish everyone a great time!

    February 24, 2014

  • Linda

    Sorry, but I can't do Saturday either. Next time.

    February 24, 2014

  • Dick R.

    Scott - Originally, this trip looked like a two day trip with one night at Cedar Lodge. Now, it looks like a three day trip and we need to reserve two nights at the Lodge. Am I correct!

    February 24, 2014

  • Lisa F.

    Unfortunately I have to back out due to a work commitment. Still on my list to do!! :( Hope this frees up a spot for someone to now attend.

    February 23, 2014

  • Patty S.

    Are we coming back on Friday or Saturday?

    February 23, 2014

  • Patty S.

    I'm looking for a ride there and back. Of course, will help with gas money. I will be staying with my brother who lives up there.

    Can we differentiate between 'weekend' and 'weekday' please? So many of these aren't weekend which is what I have signed up for & this is listed as Weekend Hikers. I do have a job...

    1 · December 14, 2013

    • Karen M.

      I think weekdays are the "plus" in "Weekend Hikers...Plus." I also have responsibilities most often during the week. Sign up for a weekend hike or snowshoe and I'm sure you will be very happy with the outing. The leaders are friendly, organized, helpful, accommodating, and patient. I have so much fun with this group, I go as often as I can.

    Is anyone interested in sharing a room to keep cost down? If so, then we can call and make a reservation for two.
