Painted Hills

The Painted Hills are part of the John Day Fossil Beds and located close to Mitchell. This stunning area has winding roads amidst a backdrop of uniquely colored geographical formations making it perfect for car commercials or productions with a road trip theme or iconic geological rock backdrops.
The colors and claystones vary depending on the light and time of day.  Particularly stunning at sunset.

Pull out parking with limited space, and some larger parking areas in the popular outlook areas.


Permit required.
