Very nice, easy hike with a bit of scrambling just before famous balanced rock. Watch for deposits of quartz streaking through the rocks. Explore all around the balcanced rock for some interesting erosion. Not much shade so bring plenty of water in the summer. We hked it in late December and the weather was perfect. Of course that is always subject to change!
