Balanced Rock Road(322) Professional Reviews and Guides
"A fun road that descends to a remote camp spot above Palmer Lake. Side road ends at wind-protected picnic spot at base of large rock outcrop. Views of front range from top of rock. Good ATV trail. Staging at start. Natural granite gravel road over roller-coaster terrain. East end narrows and drops steeply down to gate at reservoir for town of Palmer Lake. Suitable for stock, high-clearance SUVs with 4-wheel drive."
--Charles A. Wells, Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails, Vol. 1 (FunTreks).
