The hike is beautiful with a few fast moving creeks along side the trail and one to cross on a small plank-bridge. The view from the balcony was terrific with all of the surrounding peaks snowcovered. The weather was warm and the sun shining so we spent a while on the balcony. I highly recommend this hike on a clear, warm day.
The trail is easy to follow but is marked with rusty parts anyways. The turnoff trail to the balcony is marked by a large, hard to miss, rusty can and is marked with rusty old parts all the way to the balcony. The can is on a left turn next to some rock cairns and currently in one of the small snowpatches.
Great hike on a sunny April day. Will definitely try to go back and get all the way to the top of the peak.
