Bridge to Nowhere - San Gabriel Mountains

Bridge to Nowhere - San Gabriel Mountains - The Bridge to Nowhere is an arch bridge that was built in 1936 north of Azusa, California in the San Gabriel Mountains. It spans the East Fork of the San Gabriel River and was meant to be part of a road connecting theSan Gabriel Valley with Wrightwood.


Garcia Trail to Azusa Peak (El Monte, CA): The steep single-track trail gains 1,100 feet in just over 1 mile, ending at the Glendora Ridge Motorway, a dirt fire road that runs east to west. Highlights include an unusually diverse array of spring wildflowers and sweeping views of the San Gabriel Valley. Many trails in the San Gabriel Mountains take their names from the early settlers who owned or maintained property in the foothills.
