Trail Overview
Balanced Rock Road
There is some good camping along this trail that takes you to upper Palmer Lake Reservoir. Unlicensed vehicles aren't permitted on the main routes, and there are very few side roads to explore. The top part of this trail is relatively easy, but as you drop down it becomes quite a bit more challenging.
Getting There
Follow directions for Mt. Herman Road, Trail #91. Turn right when you reach Rampart Range Road 300 at end of Mt. Herman Road. Head north (right) 1 mile to Balanced Rock Road 322 on right.
