This challenging mountain loop is one of our favorites. It begins in the playful little historic mining town of Chloride, then proceeds a short distance to the notable Roy Purcell painted murals. After that, the four-wheeling fun begins. We saw ATV riders in town and the friendly folks at the Mineshaft Market allow parking behind their store. You can return their kindness by riding responsibly in town and on the trail. Commercial camping available in town at the Chloride Western RV Park.

This trail was already rated difficult, but it’s gotten even harder. It’s actually graded smooth shortly after the Murals, but you soon bear left off this easy road where the difficulty begins. Make sure you stop in at the Mineshaft Market, still going strong. They offer free trailer parking in their lot. Just ask them where to park.
