Trail Overview
Bodie Ghost Town
This is an alternative, fun, backroad route to Bodie State Historic Park that starts north of Bridgeport. History buffs will enjoy remains of the Chemung Mine and the site of Masonic, as well as great views along the way. The north end of the route enters national forest with plenty of spur roads for green-sticker vehicles.
History
In 1880, Bodie had a population of 10,000. Only 5% of the town remains but what is left is very impressive. All the remaining structures are original with only minor modifications to help preserve what is left. A small fee is charged and is used to preserve the town.
Getting There
From Bridgeport, head north on Hwy. 182 starting at Hwy. 395. Go 3.8 miles and turn right on Masonic Road (Not marked as such. Once you start in, it’s marked as 32046.)
