A difficult, steep trail; stone steps on the south face of the east bluff. Spectacular views, with Balanced Rock along the way. Estimated hiking time of 45 minutes.

Crazy how difficult this was for how short the trail is. It was busy but it was a fun trail and well worth it!

Rewarding trail on a steep climb. Rocks can be slippery so move slowly. Balanced rock itself is lovely.
