The painted hills are a sight to see, and this is a cool little trail. It's a super short and easy hike with some pretty views. Kid friendly, easy to locate.

I know many people who think this area doesn’t live up to the hype, but if you’re a geology and a photography nerd like I am, I think you will be very pleased with the Painted Hills! This trail, though short, has some really cool photography opportunities and when the sun lights up the big red hill, it’s incredible! Really big heavy the last time I did it though, bring your bug spray and keep your car doors shut. We had probably around 200 mosquitoes trying to get through the car’s rear windshield in early June!

Cool red hill. This isn’t the hike with the board walk but worth adding on to the trip.
