Hiked this at 12:30 pm with my brother. There is no trail head sign. We parked at Balanced Rock, then walk downhill on the road, go past the triangle in the road and on the right is a trail head marker for Balanced Rock, start there. Very pretty views, a great way to see the park and features without so many people. Pretty easy hike, what made it moderate for me is that there is very little shade so it was a bit hot. But I recommend it! Just take a hat, lots of water and sunscreen.

Great hike from front parking to the balancing rock and back via the Siamese twins. Great hike. Medium difficulty. But I do recommended.
