Details

GET WET IN THE HEAT ON THE HIKE TO THE BRIDGE TO NOWHERE (note...we may not reach the bridge...our goal is to get wet!)

Noon to 7 PM, Saturday September 10

Normally we hike 5 miles each way to get to the famous bridge. Maybe we'll get there, maybe not! The goal is to get in the water on the way there, swim, sunbathe etc., and get out before it gets dark at 7 pm. So, this hike may be shorter than the usual 10 mile BTN hikes.

THIS HIKE IS STARTING LATER THAN USUAL BECAUSE I AM LEADING AN 8 AM HIKE NEARBY AT POWDER CANYON LOOP.

-----------------------------

FOLLOWED BY DINNER afterward at the Old Spaghetti Factory, take 210 freeway four miles west of Highway 39 to Buena Vista offramp, and it is just north of the freeway.

DIRECTIONS: 210 freeway to Highway 39 offramp. Take the 39 north into the San Gabriel Mountains. (there is also a west fork road. DO NOT TAKE THIS!) At the East Fork Road split turn right, take East Fork road all the way until it dead ends. Park on the roadside, not in a traffic lane, unless you want to get a ticket.
