Balanced Rock is a great short leg stretcher hike when you visit the Valley of Fire Visitor Center. The trail is quick enough and easy enough, young children are likely to enjoy the outing. I suspect every region with sandstone rocks has a rock named Balanced Rock. This one is similar, though not as impressive as Balanced Rock in Arches National Park.

Getting There

Reach the park visitor center by taking exit 93 from I-15 if coming from the east ,or exit 75 if coming from the west (Las Vegas). From the highway, the route to the park is well signed. There is a fee to enter the park ($10 as of 2018 for day use).


From the Visitor Center, the short well signed and easy trail visits Balanced Rock.
