Nice hike with great views of Chloride, the Cerbat Mountains, the Black Mountains and beyond (weather permitting). Scrub oak trail, junipers in the higher elevations, rocky on top.
Magnificent view of Chloride, AZ, and the surrounding mountains and plateaus. Best part? No one seems to know about this place.
Road is pretty tame but does get bumpy from rainfall trenches in some places. Don't recommend passenger cars, you will want ground clearance.
Go straight for a ways on Big Wash Rd just north of Chloride to reach the trail. Road gets narrow in some places and goes along cliff edges, so drive carefully.
I tried coming in from the south, but the roads are abandoned once you get up to the foothills near Chloride. Only [non-sketchy] way in is from Big Wash Rd, as far as I know.
