Join UpaDowna for our 3rd Saturday adventures. Once a month we will lead a guided hike to explore a new trail, hike, or adventure topic. All ages, abilities, and experience levels are welcome!
Trail Name/Park: Paint Mines Trail
About: Paint Mines Trail is a 3.4 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Calhan, Colorado that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The multi colored rocks and there formations are absolutely stunning and make you feel like you are on a different planet. A great hike to bring a camera on to get stunning photos!

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed at the Paint Mines so let the pooch sit this hike out
