A lot cooler than I thought they would be. Long loop trail is not really necessary as the views are mostly wind turbines and grass but we did them to stretch our legs and our time there. Got there early and beat the crowds but expect a lot of people in your shots if you get there later.

Nice overview of Paint Mines. The real beauty is winding through the formations from the inside.

It was a nice walk around both loops, and the geology was super impressive. I don't need to go back again, but I'm happy I got to see what was there.

The descriptions say dogs are allowed. Was just there today and it says NO DOGS allowed.
