We passed from Avi Resort through Fort Mohave, to Oatman, on our way to Kingman. We made a point of passing through this pass on the way. It is well worth it. Near the top is a pullout with terrific views. Crosses/memorials are just below where people have scattered ashes of loved ones.

Take it slow and stay on your side of this narrow, twisting mountain pass road and you will love the fantastic scenery around every corner. A few old, crumbling foundations of by-gone gas stations and tourist cabins will remind you this was once busy Route 66, the main east-west road beginning in the 1930s until a re-route was done years...

Sitgreave's is on Route 66 between Kingman and Oatman -- so if you go to Oatman, you're going here whether you want to or not! But - even if you don't go to Oatman (which would be a mistake) - the views are still worth the drive!

The road is a bit nerve-wracking for my agoraphobia, but the views were outstanding. Drive slow! There are some very sharp turns and no guard rails.

Take your time, it's well worth the drive. Make sure to look for the old cars off the road near the hairpin curve.

we drove this route in a 1957 Chevy Bel Air and it was a thrilling experience. The road is amazing with so many twists and turns, which we absolutely loved.

The pass is after a fun filled ride of twists and turns between Cold Spring and Oatman. Closer to the wild donkey mining town of Oatman.. It is a beautiful perch off the side of the road looking towards mountain claims and beautiful full sunsets .

If you want to see the inspiration for Radiator Springs in the Disney Cars movie, then you should take the Oatman road (Route 66) from Kingman to Oatman, AZ. Site graves Pass in particular is a great place to watch the sunrise.

Difficult to comprehend this was a major highway some years ago. Plenty of space to pull off and appreciate the view. Being local, this is place I enjoy bringing visitors and then continue on to Oatman.

A worthwhile stop when traveling Historic Rt. 66. The road is a bit challanging but gives a feel for what the travelers of the 50's and 60's endured.
