Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a drive for which you don't want to be in a hurry. The narrow road, the many switch backs, no guard rails, steep drop-offs, make it a time when only the passengers can enjoy the scenery. The driver must be on his/her toes! It's a good way to experience driving old Rt 66 back in the day before interstates. Take your time and pull off when you can to take in the scenery.

What a thrill ride, wicked, nasty switchbacks, NARROW, no guardrails ,high, steep, and fun. This road is built like a bobsled run. Well worth the time to drive Route 66 from Kingman to Topock, just drive SLOW and careful, SPECTACULAR views. If you like classic, two lane world class danger, this is one.

What a fun and beautiful drive. If you're traveling to either Oatman or Kingman you should really think about making the drive in between the two. We spent some time in the ghost town of Oatman and then traveled to Kingman on Route 66. There are views around every corner on this stretch of route 66. The road can get narrow and hard to see oncoming traffic around curves, so be careful, but enjoy!

My husband and I drove Route 66 from St. Louis to California and this was our favorite stretch of the mother road! The turns feel just like radiator springs at Disneyland. Super cute road to travel if you love mountain roads. It's not too long and doesn't ever go too high on the side of a cliff. To get to it, you do have to drive through a fairly long and straight flat part of Route 66 where you'll pass a lot of Uncle Eddie's (think Vegas Vacation). At the end, you get to the super cute town of Oatman. Since we had a sleeping toddler in the back seat we didn't stop, but just driving through the town at 5 mph was worth it. If you put it in a map I believe doing this road takes about 35 minutes longer than staying on I-40.

After leaving the Nevada we decided to do a stopover on our way home to Oatman, AZ. The drive to Oatman was a bit out of our way, but we were anxious to see the Burros abandoned by miners after the mining operations stopped in the early 1900's. The town is a tourist town that is still thriving due to the daily visits from the Donkeys or Burros. The Donkeys walk through the town every day and receive numerous amounts of food from the tourists that is sold in the town. They are cute and very tame. They are worth a visit. Once we finished feeding them, we proceeded out of town down a very a very white-knuckle road called Oatman road or old route 66. This road is not for the faint of heart as the road has few barriers keeping you from going over a cliff. If you go very slow and proceed with caution it is okay.

Beautiful, hilly, desert views with wild burros along the way. So glad we drove the Oatman Highway! I had read the road was scary, and yes it is hilly, winding, and narrow. But, if you take your time, which you will want to ayway, it is absoulety drivable and enjoyable. It will probably be a highlight on your trip. We stopped at the Cool Springs Station and drove through the town of Oatman. We only had time to stop long enough to see the wild burros and we were there early before everything opened. It's a great little town to visit!

We drove through in early April after the rains and it was wonderful experience to see flowering desert. You can stop at many places to get view and take small hike. This must be the time of the year to visit.

The drive to and from this spot is not for the faint of heart. It is old route 66 from the 20's and 30's. It's very very narrow and very very very very curvy. Lots of blind hair pin turns.. It is hard to believe so many did travel this road, "back in the day". If you do take the road, the pass is really a beautiful place to see the beauty of the AZ desert.

Interesting drive and such a change from cross country interstate travel! Lots of twists and turns, cactus -filled landscape. Fun experience for both an eight year old and a 63 year old.

Gorgeous views of the mountains, Laughlin and the desert. We pulled over in a few spots. There were some burial grounds in 2 spots. Very interesting. We were told by other travelers that people spread their loved ones ashes and memorialize it. It is a curvy road, so take your time and enjoy the beauty.
