About this spot
The trail, a mixture of dirt and boardwalk, leads past numerous thermal features before reaching the feature it is named for, the Artist Paint Pots. The paint pots are located at the top of Paint Pot Hill. These paint pots are monochromatic whitish-grey mud. As you make the way up and down the trail you pass some more colorful features such as Blood Geyser and a group of “Milky Blue Pools.” This is one of the smaller thermal areas that are easily accessible in the park and offer some features that are a bit different from those you find at the larger areas. It is well worth the small amount of time it will take to visit this and walk this trail.
