This short hike encircles Balanced Rock, one of Arches Park’s most precarious rock features. Its first section accommodates wheelchair users. The easy 0.3-mile Balanced Rock Trail encircles Balanced Rock just off the park road west of The Windows section of Arches National Park. The concrete first section of the trail is wheelchair accessible. The rest of the trail is a doubletrack dirt and slickrock path that is lined with boulders. Start the hike at the trailhead on the northeast side of the parking area.
