Arches National Park Sights

Balanced Rock

  • Geological Site

Updated 11/04/2013

Fodor's Review

One of the park's favorite sights, this rock is visible for several minutes as you approach—and just gets more impressive and mysterious as you get closer. The formation's total height is 128 feet, with the huge balanced rock rising 55 feet above the pedestal. Be sure to hop out of the car and walk the short loop (0.3 miles) around the base.
