Balanced Rock- Hiking

Balanced Rock Trail Loop is a 2.9 mile loop trail located near Scottsdale, Arizona that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is rated as moderate offers a number of activity options. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on a leash. I would definitely consider this an easy hike/walk. Very much recommend going to the Balanced Rock, its pretty neat. Balanced Rock trail is very pretty but the power line road, not so much. Dogs are allowed but must be on a leash at all times. No cleanup bags or trash cans available. Also, there is no water so make sure you have enough for your furry friend too! and it is good for all the seasons but not during the rain. The McDowell Sonoran Preserve asks that you refrain from visiting during rain because it can cause damage to trails. Thankfully, it doesn't rain too much in the desert!
