So glad we took old 66 from Kingman to Needles. Beautiful drive, and Oatmen was a favorite stop for the whole family. Ghost town in a beautiful setting with the uniqueness of the donkeys running around. If you are driving I40, take this scenic drive!

Beautiful landscape on the way to Oatman (a quaint, small, "Old West" kind of place). GREAT convertible drive! (We didn't actually spend any time in Oatman as a tour bus had just arrived.)

Beautiful drive, but Don't go this way if you are in any kind of hurry. Single lanes, very narrow and little to no shoulder on most places. Expect to drive 10 to 15 MPH most of the way to Oatman.

We took Route 66 to Oatman from Kingman, and found the pass along the way. Beautiful drive. Lots of different rock formations. California poppies in bloom. Easy drive. Lots of twists and turns, but slow pace of 15 - 25 mph allowed you to see great views around each corner. Be sure to stop just passed the sign to a... More

Anyone in a hurry should not take Sitgreaves Pass. We had one such person behind us on this twisty, two lane road with no place for us to pull over. Why not just take your time and enjoy the view, which is breathtaking?

This is the old route 66, and it is worth the drive from Kingsman to Oatman Az. The view is better this way. And there are 3 museum in Kingsman worth seeing, 4 dollars for all three.

We chose to travel over Sitgreaves Pass on our journey from California to Arizona. The road was generally adequately maintained as it twisted and wound up and down the pass. There were occasional turnouts to look at the views, including old mine operations. We were concerned, however, when we stopped at a lookout and observed a 30-something man firing a... More

We were headed for Vegas and had time to take the scenic route, so we detoured through Sitgreaves Pass to see a different view. Arizona Route 10 through the Black Mountains was formerly part of Route 66. The road hugs the mountainside as it twists and climbs over Sitgreaves Pass (3586'). Some sections of the road are steep with sharp... More

We made the drive from Kingman to Oatman in October as part of our Route 66 quest; a fun and interesting drive. Be prepared for an old, narrow road where you prefer not to meet a large gravel truck coming your way (we did). Ate lunch in Oatman and watched the gunfight in the street. All good fun if a... More

The road on both sides of the pass are limited to trailers shorter than 40'. And for good reason. The road surface is good but has many switchbacks. A local tale is of an overturned bee hive hauling trailer; the driver attempting to avoid a state line inspection,
