Our permanent jump site is the historic Bridge to Nowhere located in the San Gabriel Canyon 30 miles North East of downtown Los Angeles.
Bungee America has performed over 150,000 bungee jumps and continues to proudly proclaim our impeccable safety record.
We meet at the trailhead for the Bridge to Nowhere, also known as the East Fork Parking Lot at your designated meeting time. This parking lot is located inside the Angeles National Forest, 30 minutes north of the city of Azusa, CA.
A day of bungee jumping is a full day adventure. You will meet us at the trailhead at your designated meeting time. We will then enjoy a beautiful 5-mile hike to the bridge, spend the afternoon bungee jumping, and return on the 5-mile hike back, arriving at your car between 3:00-6:00pm depending on the tour size and time of year. Guests are always free to hike back even earlier on their own once they have completed their jumps.. Contact the office for specific times depending on the season.
Their are many factors that will contribute to your return time back to your vehicle. Remember this is a full day adventure, so plan for a full day. If you have a plane to catch, or a pressing event afterwards call the office directly for exact details of the day.
Only bungee guests who are registered and participating in Bungee America’s overnight glamming and bungee jumping campout package ($300/ person) are allowed to camp at the Bridge to Nowhere.
Otherwise there is No-Camping permitted on the Bridge to Nowhere or our 50 acres of private property which surrounds the bridge.
It is a 5 mile hike each way through the gorgeous Angeles National Forest. We will enjoy a 2 hour hike (at a brisk pace) to the Bridge to Nowhere as a group.
The hike is mostly over a rocky, rugged dry river bed, and we cross the San Gabriel River 6 times. Be prepared to get wet. There is approximately 900 feet elevation gain between the East Fork Parking Lot and the Bridge to Nowhere. This hike is classified as a moderate hike in many Southern California backpacking guides. Hikers of all shapes, sizes and ages make it to the bridge every weekend. You DO NOT need to be an Olympic athlete but be aware it is 2 hours of brisk walking in each direction.
No, it is impossible to drive to the Bridge as the road was washed away in 1938. The Bridge to Nowhere is located 5 miles from any road. Therefore the only way to get there is the same way thousands of other people get there every year, WALKING. This is one element that makes the Bridge to Nowhere experience so unique.
No, there is no other way to get to the bridge besides walking. Fortunately, the hike to Bridge to Nowhere is the most popular day hike in the Angeles National Forest.
There are no opportunities to purchase food or supplies once you meet us at the Bridge to Nowhere Trailhead / Parking lot. Therefore you should bring everything you will want and need for the whole day. Important items: Backpack to carry everything, picnic lunch, snacks, and things to drink. No alcohol or glass containers. Comfortable shoes for the hike that have good traction and that you can get wet, you will cross the San Gabriel River 6 times and we DO NOT stop to change our shoes. Depending on the season you might want rain gear, a warm jacket, hats, gloves, sunglasses, sunscreen, dry socks and shoes, and always a change of clothes waiting for you in the car.
No food will be provided for you; therefore you are required to bring whatever food/snacks you would like for the entire day. Remember we will be in the wilderness most of the day. Pack accordingly.
Dress in layers, comfort is the key while at the bridge, if it is cold you’ll want to be warm, if it is wet you’ll want to be dry, if it is hot you’ll want to be cool. Bring all the clothes you think you will need to accomplish this. Jeans and sandals are highly discouraged on the hike. Everyone will be crossing the San Gabriel River and getting their feet wet, we recommend wearing shorts and running shoes or your favorite hiking shoes. Also bring dry clothes to wear once we arrive at the bridge. This will ensure that you and your feet enjoy the whole experience.
Thin, athletic clothing works great. Shoes or no shoes is your choice. For over 30 years all of the best photos have been taken of people wearing brightly colored clothing.

Although, “we” are dog owners and dog lovers the answer is, No – Do Not Bring Your Dog. This trail is NOT dog friendly. It is brutal on their paws, sharp rocks, etc. We operate as an all day adventure tour which includes many people from many groups. 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.
