|Information||How is it balanced there? 20 tonnes or more of volcanic rock balanced precariously on a ledge above the waves of St. Mary’s Bay.
The 1.7 km Balancing Rock Trail leads visitors from the parking lot, just off Highway 217 outside Tiverton, through woods and bog to the southern shore of Long Island.
At the end of the trail, a series of 235 wooden steps provide access to a cliffside viewing platform overlooking the 20-foot high finger of basalt.
Please exercise safe outdoor recreation practices and always remember to tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return.
Please do not leave valuables in your vehicle.
Hunting is a popular activity in Nova Scotia.
Please remember you are hiking in a wilderness area, and wearing “hunter orange” is advisable during hunting seasons (September to the latter part of December).
