The Bodie Ghost Town Loop Trail is less of a hike and more of a walk through an old gold mining town in Bodie, California. Bodie sits just east of the Sierra Nevada mountain range on the Bodie Hills and was once a prosperous gold mining town. Back when the town was founded, in 1876, a few thousand people moved out to live in Bodie to mine the gold; however the gold was being mined as early as 1856 by a small prospecting group.

This loop trail brings you through 'downtown' Bodie California - mainly through its streets. The streets are no longer driveable, so they're simply trails that lead through the ghost town. You'll find churches, old shops, and even an old gas station. Further up the hill is the old mine, standing high above the town.

Note: The GPS data provided does not include all of the roads and small trails that lead around Bodie - this area is really a free-for-all for trails and hiking around the ghost town.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
