Painted Rock Guided Tour

Carrizo Plain National Monument Tours

The tour begins at the Goodwin Education Center. After an introduction and brief history, the group caravans to the Painted Rock parking lot and hikes approximately 3/4 mile to Painted Rock. Although the path does not have a significant change in elevation, it is not handicapped accessible. Time spent within the Painted Rock alcove may be limited to protect prairie falcons or other nesting birds. The tour then returns and ends at the Goodwin Education Center.

Painted Rock Guided Tour is offered on Saturdays from mid-March to the end of May (Tours may be cancelled due to rainy weather and impassible roads).

During this tour your time within the alcove of Painted Rock may be limited, cut short or canceled due to nesting birds.

Groups of 20 or more must contact the Bureau of Land Management at 661-391-6121 before making a reservation.

No reservation refunds for any reason.
