We are mid 60's and not avid hikers. We walked this trail with ease and thoroughly enjoyed the view.

This trail isn't that long, but it gets you right up close to the rock which is cool. Takes maybe 20min to walk around the rock and take pictures.

How does that rock stay up there? Easy hike with modest elevation change. Fun talking to other visitors.

The trail wraps around Balanced Rock so you get to see it from all angles. When we were there, staff members were measuring it to see if it shifted. Apparently, it's been moving very slightly every year, and may eventually fall down.

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.
