Trail Overview
Pass Canyon
This is a very rugged trail in mining country that borders a closed wilderness. There are some interesting old mining structures to see at the Moss Mine ruins. There are a lot of side roads available, so OHVs are ideal for the area.
History
Oatman began as a gold mining town, but today its major industry is tourism. A major fire in 1921 burned most of the the town’s buildings, but spared the 1902 Oatman Hotel. The hotel is famous partly because Clark Gable and Carole Lombard honeymooned there in 1939. Wild burros from bygone mining days still roam the streets.
Getting There
From Bullhead City: From the Bullhead Parkway 95 Bypass, head east on Silver Creek Road. Turn left at 5.9 miles on unmarked road. From Oatman: Head north on Route 66 about a mile. Turn left on Silver Creek Road. Start of trail is on the right at 4.8 miles.
