A very unique rock formation right off the park road. Adequate parking was available when we were there. This is a good place to star gaze at night when the Milky Way become visible after sunset. Check the moon schedule and go on a night...More

This is definitely worth seeing. How is it still there and why hasn't it toppled over yet? Short hike from parking lot, pretty flat especially after hiking all day. You won't regret this photo opportunity

The "trail" is a few hundred yards - all flat. Pull off the road into the parking area and you are there. That is one of the great things about Arches. If you so inclined you can walk right up to it.

easy to walk to from the parking area and definitely worth stopping. Amazing to think that this is still standing.

This is a great trail if you are in a hurry, exhausted or just not a hiker. It's flat, short and easy to see something pretty spectacular. Obviously, Balanced Rock will not always be there, so don't miss this opportunity to witness something quite extraordinary....More

This was our second visit to Arches National Park and the Balanced Rock Trail except this time we were there for sunrise. The trail is very short and flat and therefore very easy. Like many things, such as Balanced Rock and a lot of the...More

The loop is great and when you see Balanced Rock it will make you wonder why it hasn't toppled over. Lots to see. Don't miss it.

All trails in Arches are so very well made and accessable for most people and strollers. If you don't want to hike - the drive to each of the trails is just as good for picture taking.
