We were terrified to take this pass based on what we had read... good gravy, it's nothing scary at all!!!! We took the road East, as suggested, and i can't even say my heart jumped once. Lovely spots to pull over and take a picture, and move on along Route 66.

I have driven the pass several times over the years from Kingman to Oatman. Those of you that curves make nervous may want to change drivers. The views are beautiful and scary.

If you do this drive from Oatman to Kingman (first, enter Oatman from the west and then drive through to Kingman), you hug the mountain the whole way, thereby keeping the oncoming lane in between you and the steep drop-offs. Mountain roads like this are nervewracking for me—no guardrail (or flimsy old-style metal cables strung between wooden posts), no shoulder—heck,... More

Beautiful scenery. Road was fun to drive, but if you do not like curves, may want to reconsider. Looked n like t he road straight out if Disney's Cars movie. Stopped at Cool Springs for pictures. Journeyed in to Postman. Saw several wild burros on the way.

We took this scenic drive from Kingman to Oatman AZ, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. There are quite a few places to stop and take in the view along the way. If I am ever in Arizona again, I want to take more time to stop at more of these places and explore. We did,... More

Scenic 'old highway' from Kingman to Oatman with spectacular desert - mountain - river views on paved two-lane winding road. Imagine a Model T climbing this road heading west to California. Check out the remains of copper or silver mines and the miners dwellings. Think twice before taking this road if you have a long RV.

This is old Rt 66. Great ride in car and even better on a motorcycle. On parts of it you can see for miles. Driven this many times between Oatman and Kingman. There is a general store about half way.
