Legend for Map of Historic Route 66 National Scenic Byway (Topock to Ash Fork)

 

This longest section of the original road reacquaints travelers with the arid desert, huge caverns, an Indian reservation, funky dining spots and the two-lane switchbacks through the Black Mountains that frightened motorists in the 1950s. At the end of the switchblades lies Oatman, a gold-mining town where the burro is king.
