The Bodie Hills are located on the edge of California’s Eastern Sierra and the Great Basin. Bodie State Historic Park, home to California’s official ghost town and one of the most popular state parks, lies in the center of the Bodie Hills. Visitors who venture beyond the state park enjoy hiking, biking, camping, botanizing, bird watching, hunting and motor touring through aspen-tinged valleys and across high plateaus with vistas of the Sierra Nevada, Mono Lake and the Great Basin. The Bodie Hills are home to pronghorn antelope, sage grouse and mule deer, and contain one of the highest concentrations of archaeological resources in the Great Basin.
The Bodie Hills are an American treasure with exceptional scenic, historic and recreational values, and should be protected against mining and other industrial activity that scars the land, pollutes the air and water, and limits access and visitor opportunities.
