Kingmanimages of America
DAN W. MESSERSMITH
Kingman, county seat of Mohave County in northwestern Arizona, owes its beginning and subsequent prosperity to the building of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad in 1882. The city was named for the project's chief engineer, Lewis Kingman. The initial railroad siding quickly became a supply center for mining and ranching operations that dotted the beautiful surrounding valleys and mountain ranges. Through the years, Kingman has been at the crossroads of rail, highway, and air transportation routes. Today Kingman is the "Heart of Historic U.S. Route 66" and is located in the middle of the longest remaining stretch of the "Mother Road," making it a must-see destination for thousands of tourists each year.

HikingYour 15 Great Hikes in Mohave County Arizona
Luis & Paula Vega
Long time Arizona residents, we came to Kingman in 1976. While we had �regular jobs� back then, the outdoors had always been a part of our lives - from camping, camping, hunting, fishing, prospecting, 4 wheeling and hiking, we were always ready to go. More recently, as the authors of three 4 wheel drive guide books for Arizona, the first one for Mohave County, the jump to a hiking book was a natural - another opportunity to describe the natural beauty that is all around us.
This book attempts to share information we hope will make your hikes more interesting by pointing out some of the wonders you�ll see along the trails. Because there�s so much to see and write about in the area, we had a hard time keeping the book short.
