DescriptionOne of the earliest sites of mining in Death Valley can be reached via a loop drive. Two miles from the Daylight Pass Road is Monarch Canyon where the road becomes deeply rutted. The side road to Chloride City and Chloride Cliff beyond climbs steeply to the right at 5.3 miles. Loop back to the paved road an easier way by continuing northeast down the road from the Chloride City junction.
