Balancing Rock Trail

Well-groomed 2.5-km trail and 235-step staircase lead to a platform with view of St. Mary's Bay and the Balancing Rock; interpretive panels, rest areas, picnic tables. Called "Nature's Time Post", the Balancing Rock is a narrow vertical column of basalt, balanced on its tip; the most-photographed of Long Island's striking basalt formations.
