Old Route 66 - Oatman Road

Department of Transportation.

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 an feeling of the Old West that cannot be ignored. In the ghost town of Oatman, expect to encounter free-roaming burros, staged gunfights, and a collection of scenic storefronts that complete the town's Western atmosphere. Several movies, including "How the West Was Won" and "Edge of Eternity," were filmed on location in Oatman, taking advantage of the town's picturesque street scene.


Navigating the Byway:
The byway begins in Kingman, Arizona. Take Oatman Road west through Sitgreaves Pass to Oatman. Continue through Oatman, past Boundary Cone Road, to Topock/Golden Shores, where the byway ends.
