GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service is set to unveil its long-awaited proposed Hanging Lake Area Management Plan.

The Post Independent reports (https://bit.ly/2fZhRce ) the Forest Service will unveil the plan Tuesday and is expected to propose a fee and shuttle system that would eliminate the parking crunch caused by increasing crowds at the lake.

The Forest Service said Friday Hanging Lake has continued to see a large increase in visitation over the last decade. Up to 1,200 visitors venture to the lake a day during the summer.

Release of the proposed management plan will initiate a 30-day public scoping period where the Forest Service will solicit public and stakeholder feedback on the proposed plan.
