Right outside the visitor center is another one of the famous Valley of Fire formations. From the Visitor’s Center, take a very short hike to a viewpoint of Balanced Rock.

This is a very short easy walk from the visitor center to the base of the balancing rock. Other that getting closer to the base of the rock it isn't much different from the view from either the road or the visitor center
