The Forest Service and the City of Glenwood Springs recently announce that H2O Ventures was awarded the contract for the highly anticipated Hanging Lake Shuttle service, set to launch on May 1, 2019. The new reservation and shuttle system will provide a sustainable visitor experience that protects the fragile Hanging Lake ecosystem and continues to support local tourism.
After years of planning and substantial interest and support from the community, I couldn’t be happier to be reaching this major milestone for Hanging Lake,” said Aaron Mayville, Eagle-Holy Cross District Ranger. “The shared stewardship between the Forest Service, the City of Glenwood Springs and H2O Ventures will improve the visitor experience and the ecological health of the trail and the lake.
The price for a peak-season reservation will be $12 per person, and will be available for purchase online at www.visitglenwood.com/hanginglake or in-person at the Hanging Lake Welcome Center. The online Hanging Lake reservation system is scheduled to go live April 1. The Hanging Lake Welcome Center, which will open on May 1, 2019, will be located at 110 Wulfsohn Road in Glenwood Springs.
