Bridge to Nowhere and Beyond

  • Nov 18, 2012 · 8:30 AM
  • CVS

11 mile (roundtrip), 1000 ft. gain hike from the Heaton Flat parking lot past the Bridge to Nowhere, and into the East Fork Narrows. Slowpoke paced hike along the wild and beautiful East Fork of the San Gabriel River through the Sheep Mountain Wilderness area. Some boulder hopping, rock scrambling, and 15+ stream crossings. The hike will take roughly 9 hours (including breaks)(not including driving time to the trailhead). It takes about 30 minutes to drive to the trailhead from the rideshare point we are meeting at in Azusa (directions below).  We MIGHT be hiking out in the dark the last 30-60 minutes of the hike (20 minutes of that are on a dirt road).

 

Note: You MAY get WET! This is a challenging hike mainly because it is long- you will need energy!

If you think you might want to go faster than the leader and stray from the group, please don't sign up for this hike. For social and safety reasons I would like the group to stay together. Slowpokes only!

BRING: At least 2 quarts water, lunch,snacks, WARM CLOTHES!!, HIKING SHOES OR BOOTS THAT CAN GET WET, flashlight or headlamp, raincoat?

We may go out to eat after the hike.

RAIN DOES NOT CANCEL! (That's what raincoats are for)(unless it is raining super hard- then we will cancel).

You will need an ADVENTURE PASS if you plan on driving to the trailhead from the rideshare point. They can be purchased from Sport Chalet or REI or any ranger station. There is a booth to buy them at in Azusa, but you can't always depend on it being open.


Directions to the RIDESHARE POINT in Azusa:

from the westside: 105 or 10 east, 605 north, 210 east, exit at Azusa Av. Go north (left) toward the mountains. At Foothill Bl. Turn left into the CVS parking lot. Park at the west end (back) of the parking lot.

from the valley: 118 east, 210 east, then follow directions above.

      They are all along water (hence the name ".....RIVER Canyon Hikers"). We do the Bridge hike almost once a month. Hope to see you on the next one!

    I won't be able to make it due to work conflict. I hope to make the next one. I will keep in touch Anne to see how it went. Have fun and stay hydrated.
