“Nice walk & Amazing view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

We enjoyed the walk and the view, it's worth the effort. We did it with seniors and even thought there is a lot of stairs, they were able to make it.

“Worth the hike!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

The trail through the forest and bogs down to the rocky shore was beautiful. We only saw a few other visitors and felt like we had this wonderful place to ourselves. We got some great pictures on the way there and then of the very unusual balancing rock itself. There are stairs down to the rocky cliff where you view it. Keep in mind you'll have to take those stairs back UP again so it is not for people who have difficulty with stairs.

“Don't miss Balancing Rock Trail!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

Amazing plant life along the trail (carniverous, so watch out) and a beautiful view at the end. Well maintained steps and rest area.

“Good exercise before you see the balancing rock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

The trail is not very long, just 20 minutes and 235 steps of downstairs then you will see the rock. You need to be there in order to believe the rock looks really like the picture shows.
