Overview

Long, remote climb to site of 1870’s mining town.

Fun, scenic trail climbs gradually over 1,350 feet to site of historic Chloride City, then climbs another 400 feet to Chloride Cliff high above the Keane Wonder Mine. (Accessed from Beatty Cut-Off Road, but now closed to the public. Explained on kiosk at Chloride City.) Not much remains at Chloride City except an old mining shack and a grave marker. Street-legal vehicles only. Park pass required.

Rating

Moderate
Trail Ratings Defined

Mostly easy but a few sections are steep and rough. Narrow shelf roads at Chloride Cliff subject to deterioration. Use prudent judgment when to stop as no barricades mark ends of roads. Suitable for most stock high-clearance 4x4 SUVs with low-range gearing.
