GOCO awards more than $2.2M grant for the restoration of Hanging Lake Trail GOCO awards more than $2.2M grant for the restoration of Hanging Lake Trail
Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) board awarded a $2,282,000 grant to the National Forest Foundation and the City of Glenwood Springs to restore the Hanging Lake Trail, which closed following extensive damage by July 2021 debris flows in the Grizzly Creek Fire’s burn scar area. The popular trail is located on the White River National Forest. The debris flows swept away major trail sections, took down bridges and trees, and buried the recreational area in rubble. The trail’s closure forced the cancellation of more than 15,000 trail reservations. Funding will support survey work, design, and reconstruction of a more resilient and sustainable trail to Hanging Lake. Proposed ecological and habitat restoration work includes restoring both the natural landscape surrounding the trail and an adjacent stream to minimize future erosion events and protect water quality.
