This spot is in the best section of Rte 66, especially if you're on a motorcycle. Lots of twists & turns. There's a nice spot to pull off & there are great views everywhere you look. This is a few miles before you get into Oatman if you are coming from Kingman. One early evening I got great photos of... More

Fun road, great views, and the occasional burro. Traveled through on the way from LA to Flagstaff as part of a 2 week road trip. Was a deliberate trip through the pass, mapping software bypasses it in favor of time. It added maybe an hour all told. Oatman was fun to drive through, not much to stop for. The pass... More

Nice ride out if the weather is good, wouldn't have liked it in rain as you were a bit close to the edge at times and the car at the bottom of the valley was off-putting. Watch out for Burros on the road as you get near Oatman.

After leaving Oatman, AZ. we followed Route 66 up to the pass and over on our way to Kingman, AZ. Absolutely awesome views, almost as good as the petrified dessert. When you get to the top you just have to look both ways. Could have taken many more pictures but unfortunately we were pressed for time.

This is a very good vantage point to see the valleys of the two sides of the peak. It is also a landmark from old Route 66 days. It gives a break to Route 66 travellers after very curvy climb once the Cool Spring Camp passed. More curves are on the road forward while declining towards to Oatman.

It is well worth the effort to drive up to the pass as the views are spectacular, but take your time as it is a tricky drive

If you drive to or from Oatman you just have to drive over Sitgreaves Pass. It's totally easy just go slow if you find the drop offs and curves a little nervy. Great views just don't stop on a bend. When coming down use a lower gear and save your brakes.

Sitgreaves Pass is on the old Route 66 road from Kingman to Oatman Az. The scenery is great but make sure you use the turn outs to stop and look as this is a narrow mountain road so pay attention to driving. There are sections of the old Beale wagon road visable if you know where to look. Stop at... More

This is on the road from Oatman to Kingman and is much more worthwhile than Oatman. Spectacular views of incrediblely sculpted mountains.
