Post Independent Picks Hanging Lake Alternatives

Take a break from the crowds and turn your attention to other Garfield County hikes. Much like Hanging Lake, these are nearby, easily accessible and provide views worth writing home about. Mushroom Rock is located just north of Carbondale in the Red Hill trail network. The trail is a steep climb up and over rocks and a bright red terrain but quickly offers gorgeous views of Carbondale, the Crystal River and Thompson Divide.
