Alas, you are skipping down the trail when all of a sudden you see a large mass of rock that looks ready to tip over. You approach with caution as not to disturb the structure. After gaining the ledge, you place both hands on the rock to see if the slightest movement will cause a commotion. Nothing happens... you pause for a moment to make sure all is well and you’re off for the summit. In gaining the summit, you have a smirk about your face because you feel as if you have done something wrong. You have not. In fact, you have done something any true climber should do. You see an interesting looking rock and you have the need to climb it.
Once on top, don't move too much...


Step off trail of the Balancing rock trail. Hard to miss this thing

Whoof, I'd hate to be the person responsible for knocking that thing over and getting climbing banned at the park.
