  • The Rock is about half and hour outside of Twin Falls. If you aren't paying attention you could easily drive by the park and the rock. The Rock isn't as awesome as I expected. The canyon that you'll d...  more »
  • We were heading down the lovely scenic byway of road 30 towards Twin Falls and decided to take a little detour to see Balanced Rock. It took us about 20-30 min from road 30 and it was worth it. The ro...  more »
  • 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.

  • 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! :-)
  • Balanced Rock is just a pull over site. There was a nice little picnic area down in the Canyon.
  • Quite a view from the road. The balanced rock is remarkable. A wonder it still stands. A bit out of the way from Buhl, but worth the effort to see.
  • 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
  • Pretty cool to see...it's a bit of a hike from the road...bring bug spray. I've never seen so many flies in my life. Seriously... Like, Ethiopia kinda flies.
