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.

Found these years ago, make your own story as you view these! Nice easy hike from the town of Chloride. Stop by the Mineshaft Market for directions if a first timer. This market has it all!!
