The Bridge to Nowhere

This is a beautiful hike taking us through several water crossings possibly knee-deep or more. Please only sign up if you are an experienced hiker. No beginners, please. I also ask that you remove your name if your plans change. I will check the list in the morning and if you are still on the list, we will be expecting you. There is no cell service up there and parking is difficult. Give yourself plenty of time.

Highlights:

Lovely stream, cascades, shear granite walls, mysterious Bridge to Nowhere

Bring:

Plenty of water, lunch for yourself and a snack to share, water shoes, sunscreen, hat, ten essentials, toilet paper and a ziplock bag to carry your toilet paper in. You will need an Adventure Pass to park in the lot ( available at REI or Big 5).

Distance:

9 miles

Elevation Gain:

1000 feet

Hike Time:

4.5 hours

Difficulty:

Moderate

Trail Condition:

Poorly maintained trail

Hike Type:

Out and Back

More info about this hike can be found here:http://www.localhikesbeta.com/Hikes/San-Gabriel-River-East-Fork-1145

Trailhead:From Interstate 10 or the 210 freeway, exit on Azusa and head north 10 miles or so, paralleling the San Gabriel Dam on your right. Turn right on East Fork Road and continue 8 more miles to the East Fork Station, where the road dead ends. Note that if you go around a hairpin 180 degree turn on East Fork Road, you missed the road into the Sheep Mountain Wilderness. The trail head is short distance down an obvious service road.

    Hey Stephan, I did this hike a couple a weeks ago. The hike began at 8a. and all the parking spaces were full and cars were parked along the road for about a mile. I know you have your ways of getting a parking space...LOL! Just letting everyone else know if they can carpool and/or get there early, parking will not be as much of an issue.....This is a popular hike! Also, Bungee America has at least 50 people that hike up the trail to the bridge. They will be using the same parking spaces.
