  Balanced Rock
by Ischyros

A quick stop at this gravity-defying rock is a must! View it from the pull-off or hike the very short trail to the base and get an idea of exactly how tall this giant rock is!

Directions: Balanced Rock is impossible to miss. It stands 175 feet above the surrounding flat desert alongside the main park road.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
