Is Bodie Masonic Road a 4x4 trail?

The drive is rather remote: be prepared for lack of cell reception. It was originally known as the Geiger Grade. Along the way you’ll have to cross a couple of small streams. It’s suitable for most stock SUVs with 4-wheel drive and moderate clearance. The high elevation and remote location of the area come with some risks.
