Bridge to Nowhere River Hike

This is an moderate family day hike that takes you along the East Fork of the San Gabriel River leading an abandoned bridge . This is a popular hike with people also parking here to picnic and swim in the nearby river.

Arrive early, and prepare to leave your vehicle along the road leading to the trail head when the lot is full. The trail leading to the bridge is mostly gradual with some rugged terrain and rock scrambling. Wading through thigh to waist high water is unavoidable (at least in wet months) so pack appropriate footwear.
