South of Buhl in the Salmon Falls Creek Canyon stands world-famous Balanced Rock. Over 48 feet tall and 40 tons, the wind-carved rock balances precariously on a pedestal only 3 feet by 17 inches. Nearby Balanced Rock Park is an excellent spot for a picnic.

The dirt and gravel roads between Winter Camp and Balanced Rock were in good shape due to no rain for the past week and the BLM having a grader onsite.  I would not try this just after a rain. There are ruts 4-6" deep where someone in a dually truck tried and got stuck.
