Â The Bridge to Nowhere â€” built in 1936 and located north of Azusa, California in the San Gabriel Mountains â€” was meant to connect the San Gabriel Valley with Wrightwood; but, the great flood of 1938 washed out the road that was still under construction.
The project was abandoned, which left a cool bridge in the middle of the Sheep Mountain Wilderness. Basically, the only way to get to the bridge is via a nine-mile round trip hike or on horseback.
Â Let me tell you: itâ€™s well worth the hike.
I did the hike few days ago, and it was a great workout â€” make sure you bring lots of water. I would say the most challenging thing when you hike to the bridge was probably crossing the river without getting wet! There is a trail by the river that takes you to the bridge but you need to cross the river at least five times.
Now, we hiked in September and we barely made it without getting wet. If you planning on doing the hike in spring, make sure to bring few extra pairs of socks.
Once you make it to the bridge, you will be amazed. A beautiful arched bridge standing out there all by itself. The bridge is privately owned and famous in Southern California for its bungee jumping. The private company who runs the bungee business, Bungee America, offers six different types of bungee jumps:Â
