There are some unusual pine trees on the way in to Topock.
Topock is known for boating. It also has the 1919 Old Arch Trails Bridge, which used to be the Old Route 66 Bridge. It carried traffic until 1947 when the deck was removed to accommodate a natural gas pipeline. The Bridge was featured in the opening credits of Easy Rider and Henry Fonda actually crossed the Bridge while filming The Grapes of Wrath.
Topock also is at the starting end of the Annual Historic Fun Run , in which hundreds of classic cars are driven to Seligman, AZ.
