“Fascinating”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We visited the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest as a bit of a break in a long journey, but found it really fascinating and would like to have spent more time there. The colours of the desert become more intense as you drive from the interstate towards the Petrified Forest. The blue cliffs look amazing - definitely worth a visit.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

This park was absolutely beautiful! It's a 28 mile road through the Little Painted Desert and The Petrified Forest. Both are stunning. There are a few little trails off the road where you can stop and hike a bit, but none are strenuous. I went close to sunset and had some amazing views!

“Unless we went to the wrong place......”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This place was abandoned and there was graffiti all over the tables and covers. It has a wonderful view, but does not seem like a safe place to spend any time at.
