UPDATE JUNE 12: Wind has delayed the repainting of Seven Magic Mountains. The popular exhibit near Jean will now be closed through June 20.

Access will be limited to the popular roadside attraction Seven Magic Mountains starting May 28.

A notice was posted the Seven Magic Mountains website. Apparently the rocks are in need of a little touch-up.

Seven Magic Mountains is comprised of seven towers of colorful, stacked boulders standing more than 30 feet high. About 1,000 people per day visit the rocks.

The $3.5 million attraction was created by internationally-renowned artist Ugo Rondinone. It is located near the Jean Dry Lake Bead off of Interstate 15 about 10 miles south of Las Vegas.

The attraction opened on May 11, 2016, and was originally scheduled to be on view for 2 years.

Because of its popularity, the Bureau of Land Management issued a three-year permit extension for the attraction, meaning it will be on display through the end of 2021.
