Nice little area in Digby neck right off of the main road. Very clear directions... down haha. A good workout wont take you too long and you get to see a cool little feat of nature at the end.

Beautiful walk. Steps going down....not so bad. What goes down , must come up. Torture going up those stairs. But....my 80 year old father did it....so, it wasn’t to difficult.

The trail makes for a nice walk if you're in the area already anyway. It's short and easy; there are lots of interpretative signs and the view once you're at the coast is beautiful. As others have mentioned steep stairs lead to the Balancing Rock viewing platform, so if you really hate climbing stairs you might want to reconsider.

The first part of the walk is in the forest, then you get to the stairs that lead you down to where you can observe the Balancing Rock. Lots of stairs make for a nice little workout and the Balancing Rock is cool to see. :) You need to take a little ferry to get to the Island so make a day trip out of it. There's a picnic park near by.
