Arkansas Point Trail System Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The figure-eight trail through Paint Mines Interpretive Park is a real treat! The trail winds through shortgrass and midgrass prairie, where you can see blue grama, Colorado's state grass. Chokecherry, mountain mahogany, wild rose, and a variety of other plants find moisture in the natural drainages.
The trail follows a creekbed for part of the journey, while a graveled path finishes the tour, including a great view of brilliantly colored hoodoos and other eroded features. The designated trail takes you close to the formations, but not in them, to prevent damage to these fragile outcrops."
