Paint Mines Interpretive Park - Calhan, Colorado

A Unique Place On The Eastern Colorado Plains
It's understandable one might think there's not much to see on the plains of eastern El Paso County. However, nestled in a hillside is a fascinating area of rock formations and hoodoos that definitely break up the monotony. The Paint Mines reminded me of Goblin Valley State Park in Utah and the Painted Desert in Arizona. There are trails and pretty overlooks. A casual scrambler will certainly enjoy the Paint Mines. There is no entrance fee. Go and enjoy!
