Historic Route 66 California Gateway Site Day Use Area

Visit Route 66

Located approximately two miles west of the Colorado River off Interstate 40, the day use and picnic area memorializes the entryway of Historic Route 66 in California. The site contains two covered picnic tables, an information kiosk, visitor log book, desert plants and trees, and a wind gage. The visitor log book has become so popular with visitors that local residents visit the site just to read the log entries.
