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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
