  • We hiked up this trail. It is easy to miss the balanced rock. It is off to the right of the trail after a big lookout spot. You can watch our video of our visit on YouTube (Day Hiking Duo)  more »
  • It's very difficult to go from South to North on this trail with all the steps taking you to the top to connect to the East Bluff trail. I highly recommend starting the East Bluff/Balanced Rock...  more »
  • Best park in Wisconsin. Swimming, hiking, running or rock climbing. Great to spend a weekend here.
  • Worth the hike. Gorgeous lake backdrop. Can easily get missed because no signs point to it. Easy to get confused with signs pointing to balanced rock trail and no final signs to balanced rock. However as you climb down or up to it, there‚Äôs a junction sign to go up to east bluff going up and balanced rock going down. Look up the mtn to the right. Right on top of plateau with a rock like a giant U. Head there. Take cool pics
