Balanced Rock on the Grapevine Hills Trail 1

Big Bend National Park

The hike along the Grapevine Hills Trail is an easy mile stroll. The last two-tenths of a mile is a little steep, but still easy. The payoff is a great view of the northern Chihuhuan Desert and the iconic Balanced Rock. While it’s been like this a long time, it is still a bit sketchy standing beneath it. You just never know when gravity will win! The hike along the Grapevine Hills Trail is an easy mile stroll. The last two-tenths of a mile is a little steep, but still easy.
