“If you wish to see Balanced Rock, I'd take a trail that isn't this one.”— David Smith
When the trail begins to turn left, it starts ascending the hill. The trail takes a right turn through a stand of Norway Spruces. It passes a cellarhole (on the right), then reaches Balanced Rock Road. Turn right to reach the Balanced Rock.
