Paint Mines Interpretive Park Improvement Project

November 2020 to April 2021

El Paso County is initiating a construction project at Paint Mines Interpretive Park that will require intermittent closures of parking lots and sections of trail. The project includes resurfacing of existing trails, decommissioning social trails, installing new culverts to prevent erosion of trails, new signage and wayfinding, and an expanded main parking area. The project will begin Monday, Nov. 16 and is expected to last through Feb. 2021.
