******* CANCELLING THIS HIKE. WILL RESCHEDULE FOR A LATER DATE *********

Join us this Saturday, May 25th for the infamous Bridge to Nowhere hike. Here’s a brief summary from the hikingguy.com website:

The 6 hour, 10.5 mile Bridge to Nowhere hike in the San Gabriel Mountains is one those hikes that you have to do at least once in your life. As the name suggests, you hike along the San Gabriel River in the beautiful Sheep Mountain Wilderness for about 5 miles, and then, out of nowhere, there’s a huge, 120-foot high bridge! The hike is fun, especially on a hot summer day, because there are plenty of stream crossings and water holes to cool off in. It’s a classic Southern California hike that every local knows about, so give it a try.

Here is a link to The Hiking Guy’s very detailed writeup:

https://hikingguy.com/hiking-trails/best-la-hikes/bridge-to-nowhere-hike/

The plan is to begin hiking from the trailhead at 8 am. We’ll hike up to the bridge and down the other side to a spot where we can eat lunch and watch the bungee jumpers. Then we’ll hike back.

BungeeAmerica owns the land around the bridge and provides bungee jumping off the bridge. If you want to bungee jump, you have to book a date with them and hike up with them. I don’t think they allow walk ups. For more info, check out their site: http://www.bungeeamerica.com

The trail criss-crosses the San Gabriel River several times each way. The water is running high this year due to the heavy snow and rain this past winter, so be prepared to walk through cold water up to your knees and maybe a little higher. Bring water shoes/sandals or a couple pairs of socks if you are hiking in boots.

The forecast is for partly cloudy skies with a high of 59. Temps at rollout are forecast to be around 50 degrees.

Where to Meet

The trailhead is located at the end of Camp Bonita Rd in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Here’s the plus code: 66PP+R2 Glendora, California

Carpool and Parking Info

This is a very popular hike and, being Memorial Day weekend, it will be even more crowded. The parking lot fills up early (7ish) and folks park along the road leading up to the lot. Be prepared to park a quarter to a half mile away from the lot if you don’t get there early enough. And leave yourself enough time to walk that distance to the trailhead by 8 am.

When we get a better idea of who’s going, we can determine carpools and pickup spots. I have a Toyota Sienna van but I think I’m full.

We plan to start hiking at 8am. Keep in mind that once you get into the San Gabriel’s, cell signals are hard to come by. So if you’re running late and can’t reach anyone, be prepared to start the hike on your own and catch up.
