Picnic in the shadow of Balanced Rock
Balanced Rock is a unique natural phenomenon in southern Idaho and the surrounding park is one of the most fun and well set-up places to spend a summer day with the family. The park (called Balanced Rock Park) is located in the stunning Salmon Falls Creek Canyon which appears unexpectedly from the grassy farmlands surrounding Castelford, Idaho. Make sure to bring a GPS with you as if can be tricky to find the first time.
When you enter the canyon, you'll see spectacular cliff walls, a gently river, and plenty of playful little critters like marmots and squirrels. The welcome area of the park has barbecue grill set up and plenty of manicured lawns for a riverside picnic.
