“hike in, bungee jump off!”
The Bridge to Nowhere is an arch bridge that was built in 1936 north of Azusa, California in the San Gabriel Mountains. It spans the East Fork of the San Gabriel River and was meant to be part of a road connecting theSan Gabriel Valley with Wrightwood. The East Fork Road was still under construction when it was washed out during the great flood of March 1–2, 1938. The East Fork Road project was abandoned as a result of the flood, leaving the bridge forever stranded in the middle of what is now the Sheep Mountain Wilderness.Parts of the old asphalt roadway can still be found along the East Fork Trail which leads to the bridge, and there are still a number of concrete slabs which formed the foundations of destroyed bridges to the west of the Bridge to Nowhere. Indeed, the sign along the trail 30 feet east of the John Seals Bridge which announces the start of the Sheep Mountain Wilderness is resting on the old roadbed. The bridge is only accessible via a 9-mile round-trip hike or on horseback. Despite its popularity, the frequency with which the trails get washed out means that they are rough in places. The trail following the riverbed crosses the East Fork 6 times between the bridge and the trailhead. Generally, one follows the river up its course, with several stream crossings before the ascent to the level of the bridge. A bungy-jump company offers packages where you can hike in as a group and then bungy jump off the bridge.
