Bodie State Paek
An original ghost town from the late 1800's stands today in a state of "arrested decay". After leaving the paved State Highway a 3 mile trip on a graded dirt road brings you to this State historic Park. With around 200 buildings in this old mining town you will have plenty of exploring to keep you busy for hours. Be sure to bring your own water and food as there are no services in town.
