There are lots of great hiking trails in California, and you don’t have to travel far to reach a trailhead. I’ve done most of my hiking in Southern California. By time, I’ll list some of my favorites along with photos. First up is my hike to the Bridge to Nowhere.


East Fork Trail to the Bridge to Nowhere. I did this hike in December 2013 as part of a bungee jumping adventure. It’s a 10 mile hike along the banks of the San Gabriel River. I’d say it’s one of the most unique trails in the Greater Los Angeles Area. You’re hiking in the rugged canyons of the San Gabriel Mountains and you get to this mysterious bridge that literally sits in the middle of nowhere, but for a good reason. The trail takes you through a mix of rocky and wooded areas, and for the last part a lot of scrub brush. You’ll probably get your feet wet on this hike as there are several stream crossings. Water was low when I hiked it, but I still got my feet wet. When you get to the bridge, find one of the small trails that lead down to the stream, so you get to see the bridge from below. If you’re in Los Angeles and want a fun get-away hike, this is the one. Directions: From Azusa (north of Los Angeles), just follow the San Gabriel Canyon Road and then E Fork Rd to the trailhead.
