The Balanced Boulders is a true Adirondack classic, perfect for all ages and abilities. The Balanced Boulders is also a great place for an unusual adventure, located close to Route 73, it also makes for a great 1/2 day outing. We guide this hike fairly often, it introduces a wide variety of visitors to hiking in the area and to outstanding views. The Balanced Boulders also offers a great introduction to a bit of rock scrambling if so desired and a short scramble through a narrow cavern to a natural rock ceiling.
