Paint Mines Interpretive Park

Saves: 164
Check-ins: 13
From afar these large boulders and rock formations have a colorful tie-dye pattern. The striations run horizontally in a continuous pattern across the hoodoos. It's easy to see why the hues found in the sand and clay were the pigments used in early Native American pottery. Visitors love this hike because it is easy to traverse and the sightseeing is extraordinary. Because the sandstone is easily eroded visitors are asked to stay on the trail. This park aims to be as natural as possible so while restrooms are available you will not find gift or snack shops.
