If you've made it to Chloride, you might as well visit Roy Purcell's murals. You may want to pass, though, unless you're driving a four-wheeler. The dirt road is a little over a mile out of town and quite bumpy and washed out in one...More

The road to the Murals may be too rough for cars but no problem for trucks due to heavy recent rains the road is tore up. Worth the drive beautiful mountains. Spend the afternoon go for a hike.

We visited Roy Percell's murals at the suggestion of Michelle at the prospector bar. They are up a little bumpy gravel road about a mile out of chloride. They are simply beautiful to look at in the whole Canyon is wonderful.
