Ghost town is neat but we went last weekend and were charged $5 a person to walk to the buildings and also our pup was not allowed otherwise I would have rated higher. We weren’t able to do the trail since we weren’t going to leave her in the car.

Make sure to go on the river run trail. You can access it just past the two story hotel building. Nice easy trail mostly along the river. Some posted pictures are from this hike.

Was the best preserved ghost town I've seen (Until I went to Bodie) Still worth it if your in the area, great place to get some fall color shots, Castle Creek has great color if you hit it right
