  • Balanced Rock in Idaho is found in a roughly 30 miles WSW of Twin Falls. When you drive on US-30 WEST or US-93 SOUTH from Twin Falls, you will find signs that direct you to this interesting rock forma...  more »
  • I had read about this site, but looking for it on the highway map in advance was a little puzzling for me. Luckily, my wife & I visited the Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument in Hagerman and the k...  more »
  • Miles and miles of nothing but sage brush and hay and then a few rocks. The balanced rock is interesting but we didn't think it was that impressive. Maybe we have done too much traveling. Out in the m...  more »
  • This is a huge rock or boulder that has eroded at the bottom to only about about a little over a foot. You can park along the road or hike up the side of the hill to get a closer look. The hill is steep so use your own judgement. Kids will love climbing up there. We were there in August. Lots of big flies, I don't know where they came. A little tricky to find without GPS but worth it if you find it. Who doesn't love a challenge?!
  • This place is fantastic! We were the only ones there for most of the time, so it was very peaceful. Even very little traffic to break up the solitude. There are fascinating geological formations as far as we could see. We hiked to the top of the monolithic rock right beside the balanced rock, but didn't want to scoot up the one actually holding the balanced rock. I would think the short hike would be considered moderate.
  • It was interesting to see but it's a one time visit and you're good kind of deal. The graffiti and trash remove from the site and its sad to see it present
  • Great Picnic Area for Families. I Hiked Up to get Close up Photos. Not Recommended Hike for Young Children or Older Folks.
  • Great place to camp. Just remember the sprinklers come on during the week.
