Hike to Bridge to Nowhere @ Azusa
Sunday, January 21 @ 7:00 am - 12:45 pmFree
East Fork Trail (Bridge to Nowhere) is a 10.7 mile (1935 ft elevation) out and back trail located near Azusa that features a river and is rated as moderate. This trip takes you along the banks of the east fork of the San Gabriel River. While the river banks are wooded and quite lovely, most of the trail traverses the rim above the high water line and most of your travel is through scrub brush. The highlight of the hike is a mysterious bridge built over the east fork in 1936, which has no road leading to it.
It took us 4 1/2 hours last time (4 hours hiking, 1/2 hour having lunch at the bottom of bridge). There is bungie jumping for $100 at the bridge should you choose to do it. We were able to avoid getting wet last time, but the height of the stream depends on how much rain we get before the date. You may want to bring water shoes/sandals if you don’t feel comfortable hopping over rocks or don’t want to take hiking shoes off.
We can meet at Path Bike Shop in Tustin at 7am to carpool, or meet at the trailhead at 8:15am.
You need an Adventure Pass to park at the trailhead.
Trailhead address: Camp Bonita Road, San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, Azusa, CA 91702
Trailhead coordinates: 34.2370853885039,-117.7649963529816
Make sure Google Maps (or whatever you are using ) takes you to the trailhead before you start driving. Google Maps failed us last time. There is no reception once you start driving into the mountains.
