A relaxing and beautiful drive to Oatman. The roads are winding and narrow but well worth a slow drive to enjoy the beauty of the area.

This part of RT66 reminded us of what you see on TV about RT66 in the desert. If your heading to Oatman this part is the best way to go.

Driving up the Sitgreaves Pass on old Route 66 on you way to Oatman and beyond is a great experience. The views are wonderful on the windy road up into the mountains. Definitely a must see when in the area.

In August of 1958, I drove U.S. Route 66 through this area. I cannot believe what a drive that must have been seeing the road now some 60-years later. The scenery is certainly nice and we enjoyed the drive. We were returning to Needles, Caifornia,...More

If you make your trip from Kingman and go over the pass, it means you are going to go through Oatman and you will want to stop there. However if you just pass through Oatman and go down to 95 business through Bullhead to 163... More
