Technically this could be considered graffiti and would probably be a finable offense today but when Ray Purcell, an art student working in an area mine, painted the rocks in 1966 it must have been okay. Putting the graffiti issue aside, these are really cool murals! There are also Native America petroglyphs alongside the paintings and on the rocks on the opposite side of the canyon.
Because of the very rocky terrain wheelchair users will not be able to view the entire mural.
The road to the murals is dirt, narrow and rough in places. After about 1 1/2 miles it ends at a small parking area. We drove there in our little 25’ motorhome and just barely fit. Passenger cars made the trip without any problems but ask in town about the condition of the road if you have any doubts. Murals
