Oatman Road

Oatman Road is a narrow mountain road with a length of 47.4 mi, located in the Black Mountains of Mohave County, Arizona, United States, going through the Historic U.S. 66 W. The road climbs the Sitgreaves Pass, at an elevation of 3,550 ft. above the sea level. 

Sitgreaves Pass is the highest point on Route 66. The road starts in Highway 40 and after 36 minutes driving the road arrives to Oatman, a former mining town in the Black Mountains of Mohave County, Arizona, United States, at an elevation of 2,710 feet (830 m) above the sea level. 
The surface of the road is asphalted, and chains or snow tyres can be required anytime. A beautiful desert stretch of Historic Route 66, Oatman Road begins at the town of Kingman, a winding two-lane road that passes through 42 miles of Arizona's gorgeous desert terrain. This remarkable setting, combined with the byway's exciting Western history, creates a feeling of the Old West that cannot be ignored. The road includes some steep sections.
