Description

At the end of the Grapevine Hills Trail, you'll come to this large rock balanced and suspended overhead by two other rocks.

Short Hike: Hike about 1 mile along the Grapevine Hills Trail.

Family Friendly: It's an interesting rock formation that is both impressive for adults and for children alike. The hike is not too difficult either.

Gem Type: Rock Formation
