Great gem of a place in Colorado. I just wish everyone else who was there paid attention to the couple of signs requesting for visitors to NOT climb on the formations to help preserve them for the future since they're fragile. I saw multiple people climbing on them, even parents taking their young kids up to the tops of the formations despite signage. Also no dogs allowed. I didn't see any today but have seen a couple photos on social media of people who have brought their dogs. Rules apply to everybody for the sake of preservation!

Lovely stroll with amazing sights!

I visited the Paint Mines at sunrise and spent a few hours hiking and admiring the formations. There was no one else around except the local long-eared jack rabbits. The early morning light really accentuated the shapes and made photographing them really exciting! I would absolutely recommend visiting!

My kids really liked this hike. It was easy and the distance wasn't bad. The rock formations are really impressive. It was overcast and therefore quite cool. I don't think I'd want to do this one when it's full sun.

Very easy trail with a lot of reward. Brought a friend who was visiting and not used to hiking and he was fine. Got some really beautiful photos out of it and I like that it is pretty close to Denver.
