Fun and scenic drive though the pavement wasn't in great shape. No lines on the road with curvy mountain passes. We stopped at the Cuesta fire agate mine just past eds camp where the owner don Nelson has a great selection of agates for sale or will set you up on his claim to mine your own. Drive carefully!

What a great stop to take pics , there is plenty of room to park off road and take great pics . if you park on the right side of the road you can take great shots of the switchbacks winding there way into Oatman .

This is one of the most scenic drives along Route 66. It is not for the faint of heart. Its scary but one of the best and most exciting drives I have ever done. It has 180 degree switchback curves, narrow road, few guardrails, cliffs on one side and rock walls on the other. Blind turns, wow. Don't drive it... More

Be sure to stop at the top on the south side & walk to the end of the dirt path. There you will find the "graveyard," which is actually a fascinating memorial with incredible views.

Was beautiful when you find a place to pull off and get out just to see where you came from😁not that long of a drive but you have to go sloiw because of the curves. The town of Oatman was worth the stop also so go all the way!!!

As all the reviews say, a twisty, narrow road - not recommended for squeamish folks or RVs! (vehicles over 40 ft are prohibited) But the views are amazing, fantastical rock formations, lots of desert plants. Check out the fish pool and the "cemetery"! The pool is on the Kingman side of the summit, about a mile? down and on the... More

We traveled from Oatman to Kingman and weren't expecting this road but it was a nice, fun surprise. It's crazy to think that was the same road that people used to travel on a long time ago. Very windy and can be a dangerous road, and realize that there are other people on the road too, so be careful of... More

A fun scenic and historical drive through Sitgrieves Pass to Oatman. We really enjoy curvy, winding roads; however, the only down fall is it can be frustrating when driving behind people that don't know how to drive. If that happens just take your foot off the gas and let momentum take control.

Narrow, winding road with 180-degree switchbacks, blind curves, and no shoulders, all with a sheer drop on one side. I have no clue what the scenery looks like as I was just trying to keep us on the road -- a road that seemed to have no end -- and avoid hitting any oncoming traffic. And there was oncoming traffic.... More

I am so glad we made the trip Oatman so that we could experience Sitgreaves Pass. This is my new favorite stretch of road. It's not for people who are afraid of heights.
