Trail Overview
Chloride Mines
Parking is available behind the Mineshaft Market, and camping is available at the Chloride Western RV Park. Please ride respectfully through town. The trail starts out in Chloride, a delightful mining town, and takes you first to Roy Purcell painted murals. Then your four-wheeling adventure begins.
History
Roy Purcell first painted his murals in 1966, but they have recently been redone. The boom years for mining in Chloride were from 1900 to 1920. At one point, 2,000 people lived in the town, unearthing about 75 mines on the surrounding hillsides. Today the unique town is a popular tourist attraction. Check with the Chloride Chamber of Commerce for planned special events.
Getting There
Take Highway 93 north from Kingman about 18 miles and turn right on County Road 125 about 0.3 miles after mile marker 53. A large sign for Chloride marks the turn.
