Balanced Rock

Description:

South of Buhl in the Salmon Falls Creek Canyon stands world-famous Balanced Rock. Over 48 feet tall and 40 tons, the wind-carved rock balances precariously on a pedestal only 3 feet by 17 inches. Nearby Balanced Rock Park is a good spot for a picnic.

Directions:

This is a spur trip off the Thousand Springs Tour. Follow the signs from Buhl to Castleford, then drive six miles northwest through farmland to Balanced Rock.
