This park is a geological interpretive park that has been reserved for education and hiking. It is public lands and well used. The clays, sandstone, and and volcanic conglomerate volcanic material gives off greens, reds, blues, yellows, and orange hues.
It is like a small version of the badlands making up pinnacles, hoodoos, and other erosion features. The highpoint of this public land is the small closed contour near Paint Mine Road East. Thus the prominence is minimal but it is nice public park that you can highpoint while hiking through the geologic layers.
