The Oatman Loop is an awesome ride that includes some historic sites in Western Arizona.  This route begins in Kingman and travels South to historic Oatman where you can watch a wild west re-enactment or feed the wild burros.  Along this stretch, just past Cool Springs is a famous stretch of road called the "Arizona Sidewinder" that boasts 191 Curves in 8 Miles!


After leaving Oatman, the ride continues South to Topok before turning back North towards Needles.  After Needles the route continues to Laughlin where you can visit Davis Dam or take in the casinos.  We have also identified the turn to Grapevine Canyon where you can hike to view ancient petroglyphs.


After Laughlin, the route passes through Golden Valley and returns to Kingman.  You can end your ride at the start in Kingman, or you can continue the ride on a fun little out and back trip to Hualapai Mountain Park.
