Avoid tourist traffic with this fun backway into Bodie Ghost Town. Most tourists reach Bodie Ghost Town (Bodie State Historic Park) via paved Hwy. 270. The trip described here is a more interesting backcountry route starting north of Bridgeport. On the way you'll see great views, structures at the Chemung Mine and the historic site of Masonic. Any high clearance SUV can make it in dry weather.

Amazing off road drive at 9200' elevation. No one around but you and your friends and family. We did not see a single soul for 2 hours. Beautiful untouched scenery. It's an easy 4x4 drive. Only a couple small creeks that were not very deep to cross. No snow on the trail but there was some up a little higher in elevation. Totally worth the drive!!!

So unique and awesome! No service and a long drive on a dirt road getting in, but really cool. Restrooms, water and small gift shop at site. Gotta check it out!!!

Easy trail.. Cool ending at the ghost town. This was fun for a fall run because there were tons of puddles.. Camped at twin lakes!
