Re: Camping new Glenwood Springs?

i was looking at traildamage.com and i found few trails with camping sites:
TrailDamage.com - Transfer Trail
TrailDamage.com - Coffee Pot Road
TrailDamage.com - Grizzly Jeep Trail
TrailDamage.com - White Owl Lake
they all seem to be close to each other and to glenwood springs and hanging lake.
has anybody been there bofore? have you camped? do you guys think there will be a lot of snow up there?

Just a thought, How far a drive are you from Ouray, Colorado where the summit will be held? so much more to see and do there and its not as commercial

well i'm in denver, so 5-6 hrs, i'll be going to ouray not during the summit though. it is much better but i thought it was too cold now to go there and i only have 2 days so i don't want to go too far from denver, and the wife has been wanting to go to the hot springs for a while, this way she can get her springs i get my camping and hiking also.

Check out Sylvan Lake (near Eagle)

Sylvan Lake State Park - Colorado State Parks

Have you hiked up to Hanging Lake before? It's a strenuous hike but well worth the effort...

Re: Camping new Glenwood Springs?

yeah with that limited time Glenwood is a good choice. The hot springs are great. Eagle and Glenwood are the places I first came to. It was my first introduction to Colorado. You are right Ouray is a bit far.

Question Re: Camping new Glenwood Springs?

We might be in Glenwood Springs sometime this weekend too. Soe friends from WI are coming in town, and we might take them to Hanging Lake (one of our favorite little spots - along with Glenwood Canyon Brewpub ).

Do you know which day you're gonna hike to HL? My end isn't solid at all, but if at all possible, it might be neat to meet up there.

the plan is to leave friday after noon, camp there for two nights and come back on sunday, the wife really wants to hit the hot springs so i'm thinking may be hanging lake saturday morning and then go to the hot springs after that, however me and my friend both have little kids so we need to make sure that it won't be too cold where we're going to camp first, so we're not 100% sure either, but i'll let you know as the week goes on, it would be cool to get together. are you going to be doing any wheeling up there?

Probably no wheeling in that area for us this time around, but we might take them to see the Dotsero volcano....you might want to check it out as well (I'll send more info via PM if you want).
