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.

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.

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.
