  • Different look from under the question mark is viewed from above. Indeed, the absence of earthquakes, and Hong Kong. Becoming a campground near the Park. There are toilets.

  • It has climbed to balance rock. Moving without falling over rocks of the question mark and stands in wonder. America's bluest blue sky and vistas, but clean. You want a look.

  • One of the places I like to take visitors. The rock itself is quite the natural wonder and the trip there really tells the story of the Magic Valley. Perhaps the biggest surprise, though, is the beaut...  read more »
  • I grew up in this area and Balanced Rock is an icon of the area. Hard to believe until you see it. The Balanced Rock Park is a located in a small canyon so you have trees, river and canyon walls all around. It's quite beautiful and welcoming. Because it's located in a canyon don't expect cell phone reception! :-)
  • Rock formations such as these are a site to behold. I would suggest to anyone to make a trip out here and see this unique, natural landmark. However, it is far enough away that you may feel compelled to get a closer look. If you end up wanting to get a closer look, the trail is steep and there are many loose rocks, so... just be careful. Also, I feel that the area is very under managed and under surveilled, leaving opportunity for vandalism and littering. I give this a 4 star: The rock is amazing and worth seeing. The graffiti on natural rocks... not so cool
  • From the road it looks great. But a short climb to the top yields an underwhelming trashy experience. Litter including lots of broken glass takes away from the experience, also the top view/smell of a dairy, farmland, and the top edges of the canyon.
  • Right in the smack dap of the middle of almost no where! Great place to explore and see the famous Balance Rock! Climb up on top of the area beyond/above balanced rock for great views of the surrounding area. High Dessert so expect all kinds of weather, wind and during the summer time, heat. Might be some critters to watch out for so bring boots, water and your camera!
  • Slightly uneventful because it is right off of the road, but very fun to climb around, see the views and photograph!
