I visited all 3 units across 2 days. Clarno A couple of nice walks with good information panels and a couple of fossils in the rocks to look at. Some really interesting cliffs as well including the hole in the rock that you can walk a trail underneath it. Painted Hills This unit has some spectacular scenery with the colourful... 更多
We visited the Blue Basin area at the Sheep Rock site (and close to the visitor centre) and the Painted Hills. Loved both experiences, which are quite different. The up-and-back track up into the Blue Basin (to me it looked pretty green, but still) was not arduous and there were a couple of bench seats to admire the views and... 更多
The surrounding hills are absolutely beautiful. Stop by the Thomas Condon visitor center to get the best information on how to visit this park. Lots to see. Bring your camera!
We went to the Painted Hills District, the visitor center and the Blue Basin area. The colorful rocks, hills and grass were so pretty. Pictures does not do this place justice. The boardwalk through the red hills was exceptional. The visitor center was very informative, you can watch people as they work on dinosaur bones. The grand kids loved looking... 更多

What a treat it was to see these hills and learn more about the natural history in this site. There are good signs that explain things well too. You can spend minutes visiting and taking... 更多

The area is one of the richest fossilized areas in the world. So much to see. Be... 更多

Pictures and words cannot express the beauty the Painted Hills park has to offer. It was raining when we arrived so we went to have dinner in Mitchell and came back at sunset. The sky was just clearing at the end of the day and the colors were amazing. We took a couple of trails and our boots were caked... 更多
