Drive carefully around these sweeping bends from Oatman through Sitgreaves Pass. This country is so rugged, reminiscent of movie scenes from the wild west, but oh so beautiful. Stunning vistas, it's really worth the diversion from the interstate. This is original Route 66 and a...More

Wha fantastic views of the mountains. Take your time driving at as there are sheer drops and no need to rush so soak in the breath taking views :)

A welcome distraction from the interstate. Yes, the road is a bit dangerous at parts, with curves and such, but the views are worth it and it gives one a feel of how driving was before interstates came along.

If you get motion sick you may not want this road. It seemed to have more twists and turns than the Dragon in TN/NC There are spots that are sheer drop offs and lots of blind switchbacks. We took this from Cool Springs to Oatman...More

Quite scary in parts but well worth the journey to see the amazing views, as good as the bear tooth highway in South Dakota

This portion of Route 66 makes you appreciate newer automobiles that are reliable and air-conditioned. The views of the desert are nothing if not spectacular. This is a GREAT driving road. Pull over, stop and gaze in wonder at the beautiful countryside

What can I say - the road from Topock to kingman through Oatman is some of the best motorcycling (or car driving) you will ever do. Great road, great scenery, great mountains

There is nothing here but a view, but what a view it is. Pull off and park is good location, out of road way. Then a short walk to a powerful vista. You can see forever on a clear day, and what a sunset..

This portion of RT 66 is absolutely gorgeous and has a few stopping points to take some great photos. Make sure to drive very slowly as there are no guardrails and the road is on the edge of a cliff in many parts.

The view from Kingman in the morning is stunning. It also puts the sun behind you for better photo ops.

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

I am unsure of where you are headed for in the Grand Canyon, but Oatman appears to be out of the way as Oatman is halfway between Kingman and the CA border. From the Grand Canyon you could head south toward I-40 and... More
