Paint Outs

Winter Paint Outs are in full swing - except for Estes Park and Colorado Springs.  A little snow and cold can't keep us from following our passion.  Check your area's site to see the schedule.  The PAAC Board reminds you that you are responsible for your own safety.  When going out on PAAC paint out trips, wear your mask, keep the 6 feet distance, and do not carpool. 

And a warm winter welcome to Rebecca Gorrell, of Crested Butte, who has graciously started a PAAC Paint Out for the Crested Butte / Gunnison area.  See below for her November information. 


PAAC hosts weekly paint out groups throughout Colorado.

Anyone is welcome to paint with us!  You do NOT have to be a member of PAAC. See the group's page for current locations.

Contact us if you're interested in coordinating a group in your area.

**For Gunnison/Crested Butter Wednesdays - please bear with us while we figure out how to add a page link. Meanwhile, for November 2021: Rebecca Gorrell is the Paint Out Leader: 

Contact: 970 343 2690   Thanks, Rebecca!!!  Your heading this up is much appreciated. 

Wednesdays, BI-Monthly 11 AM during the cold months to allow the air to warm up, and for those coming from a distance to actually get here.

11/3: Gunsight (Pedestrian) Bridge. Terrific Views of the Paradise Divide with Slate River in the foreground, other river views, etc

From the Town of Crested Butte, head north on Gothic Road (CR 317) towards Mt. Crested Butte. In about 0.6 miles from the northern edge of Town, take a left (northwest) on Slate River Road (CR 734). Follow Slate River Road for approximately 3.6 miles until a split in the road. Take a left on Gunsight Pass Road (FS Road 585) towards Gunsight Bridge. There will be a tight left turn at the bottom of the hill, and a parking area. Park there, or keep going toward the bridge and park along the side of the road, which dead-ends at the bridge.

11/17 Brush Creek Road: Fantastic views of Mt Teocalli and backside of Mt Crested Butte, as well as an old ranch barn and assorted other old buildings. Meandering Creek.

Directions: 3.5 miles out the Brush Creek Road. Parking on right about ¼ mile past the obvious barns. Do not park at the barns, this is a frequently used turn-around for farm equipment, and people parking there makes for unhappy landowners. If there is heavy snow, we may need to park ½ mile BEFORE the barn at the Brush Creek Trailhed (huge parking lot on left) , as the road is not maintained past the barns.
