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.

I enjoyed this hike. However, there was a ladybug convention at the top. The sky island in full effect here. You can see the desert rising up to the trees.

5.6 not 4.8. Clocked on GAIA. 2.8 miles to peak. Took about 1:40. Easy to follow. Nice views except at the peak looking down on a massive open pit mine. I was the only one on the trail. Road up is as described. Rough but passable. I had an AWD sedan and no problem. Take West Wash road. Few cows on the road. Look out for trail sign approximately 2-3 miles after campground on the left. Trail drops over200 feet in first quarter mile then climbs steadily. Take a few layers. Cool on top. Also take 1 1/2 liters water. Can easily be done in 1/2 day. Started at 12:30 and back at car at 4:15. Overall nice hike.

Maps had me trying to access the trail through Chloride. Didn't work. Road was non- 4x4 friendly. Was short about 4 miles from trailhead. Drive past Chloride to Big Wash Road instead. Drive 12 miles up to about 5700 ft. Trailhead is 1 mile past Windy Point Campground. Absolutely gorgeous hike. ( 2/21/20) I clocked the trail to be 5.5 miles to the peak. Trails were great, but we encountered some snow, so spots near the top required some careful crossings ( I do not think that crampons are required; only about 4 snow/icy spots). Great workout. The trail system designer cut in some great switchbacks, so the elevation gain wasn't to bad ( about 1330). Spectacular 360° views while ascending. A must do for any hiker in the area.

Super pretty hike and probably one of the most beautiful in the area. I would definitely rate this as moderate and not easy. Went on 2-2-20 with some snow/ice at the higher elevations. Gorgeous view at the top with lots of wind and lady bugs! Happy hiking!

You need to use Big Wash Road (off of 93) to get to the trailhead. The other low ratings accessed from the other side and that is inaccessible in most vehicles (trust me, we came down that was at it was horrible). Hike is great, views are nice.

This trail has awesome views, but the wet winter has caused it to be a little over grown. Overall, I highly recommend this trail.

Great views of Volk Canyon, Chloride and the old Duval mine! The trail is very dog friendly!

Import Note: Best access via Big Wash Road from Hwy 93 north of regular road to Chloride. Regular Google Maps directions suggest road from south directly out of Chloride. That route doesn't go as mentioned in other reviews. Hike is great w spectacular views in late afternoon or early morning to get shadows on surrounding ranges.

New Years Eve hike with my dad. It took us several hours! Definitely need to bring a good deal of water if you go during warmer months.

Great day trip from Kingman! Locals are nice town is cute. Small hike recommend and AWD vehicle or better. Roads gets washed out. Murals are amazing art!

The road becomes impassable with 1.6 miles remaining, unless you have an OHV or maybe a Jeep? The road begins to climb, then washes out, and there are 3 foot boulders in the middle of the road making it too tight for a full sized vehicle regardless of 4×4 and clearance. We were in a Tacoma for reference and it wasn't happening. If you want to add another 3.2 miles to your hike and just walk the road to the trailhead, I suppose you could. Otherwise you'll have to settle for the consolation prize which is the murals.

Cons: Road is not accessible for the last 1.5 miles of "road". We attempted the drive in an AWD sedan and couldn't even make it to the trailhead. There was nowhere to park & hike the last leg either, so the whole trip was a bust. No other trail heads nearby either, according to 2 locals we asked on the way back through town. Pros: you can drive 3.3 miles into/past Chloride & off the main road to see the murals. Lots of signs. They're worth the trip, but a bummer to see no hike. You **could** hike 3.5 miles past the murals to the trailhead, however. That would just make this hike a far longer & different journey.

On the paved road that goes thru chloride keep going follow signs to murals road turns rough but worth the detour

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.
