Aurora Canyon

off road - alternate route in:

Considered the back way from Bridgeport. Locate the Bridgeport Reservoir, take Route #168 Aurora Canyon Rd to Geiger Grade, right turn to Bodie. Rugged dirt roads, mostly graded, washouts possible. 4WD might be needed in wet conditions. FREE primitive tent camping is common in Aurora Canyon, but not on the windy passes of the grade, so plan accordingly. Do not even attempt to take an RV out this way.
