View of Route 66 from Oatman heading east to Goldroad and Kingman, AZ. The road climbs steeply from here to the summit, which is part of the reason this section of Route 66 was bypassed in favor of the flatter Yucca, AZ. alignment in 1952. There is little left to Gold Roads, as virtually all of the buildings are gone. What is left are the building foundations, and many open mine shafts.
