Balancing Rock

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 253 wooden steps provide access to a cliffside viewing platform overlooking the 20-foot high finger of basalt.  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.
