Bridge to Nowhere:
We will look at each one of them in detail as we go further.
Is an arch bridge that is built over the San Gabriel River in San Gabriel Mountains, California. The connecting road was washed out during construction due to flood and was never completed, resulting in the bridge having no direct road access and being known as the ‘Bridge to Nowhere’. It is a great location to experience a 100 feet bungee jump.
Bungee jumping is offered by Bungee America which is the oldest bungee jumping organizer in the USA and the only government certified bungee jumping company in California. You could experience five different types of jumps during the day and at night strictly as instructed and with the safety, harness fastened.
Types of Jumps
- Superman Front Dive: Diving forward by standing on the bridge facing forward towards the valley.
- Backward Pluge: Crouching and diving backwards while standing on the bridge facing the bridge.
- Backward Lumberjack: Standing on the bridge facing the bridge in an attention stance like a soldier, making the body stiff and falling backwards like a pendulum.
- Forward Lumberjack: Standing on the bridge facing the valley in an attention stance like a soldier, making the body stiff and falling forward like a pendulum.
- Elevator Jump: By far the most thrilling of the lot, standing facing the bridge and looking at the instructor jumping off feet first.

Can I bring my dog on Bridge to Nowhere bungee jumping?
Although, “we” are dog owners and dog lovers the answer is, No – Do Not Bring Your Dog. This trail is NOT dog friendly.

We have had too many experiences with dog’s feet getting torn up which then becomes a huge problem that affects the entire group. If you want to take your dog on a hike to the Bridge to Nowhere, please do it some other time and not in conjunction with our bungee jumping tour. Thank you in advance.
