“Enjoy wonderful views of Chiricahua's mountains and spires, and head to a fantastically balanced rock and other trails.”— Anne Travels
After running 1.0 miles, the Big Balanced Rock appears on left. This is impossible to miss; the rock is massive and reminiscent of an enormous water cooler. You are now in the Heart of Rocks area, and the spires nearby are very impressive.
Continue a short distance to the junction with the Heart of Rocks Loop and Sarah Deming Trail; this is the official end of the Big Balanced Rock Trail.
