Giant City State Park, Ilinois

Balanced Rock
Located in the Shawnee National Forest just south of Carbondale, Illinois. The area was named for the unique impressions made by massive sandstone structures.

Shelter bluffs in the cliffs have revealed evidence of human habitation as far back as 10,000 years! On an 80 foot sandstone cliff near the entrance to the park you can see the remains of a Native American stone wall that was built between A.D. 600-800.
