this is located in the Arches National Park. it is amazing to see such a huge rock precariously perched on a little pedestal.

The distance from the car parking area to Balanced Rock, is very short. Probably only a distance of about 300 yards.

A spectacular view and an easy trail should make a great experience for those of any age. Inukshuks line the path and you may enjoy making your own. (. The traditional meaning of the inukshuk is "Someone was here" or "You are on the right path.") It is good to carry water when taking even short hikes in Arches National Park.

this is not the only balanced rock in the park but certainly the biggest .The fact that you can get up so close is amazing.

Stands at the beginning of a strikingly beautiful tour of the park. Many awe inspiring formations lay beyond it.

We took a dinner picnic to Balanced Rock to watch the sunset. Then took a walk on the trail. Gorgeous. Great place to let your inner child play.
