Bridge To Nowhere Panorama

This is a five vertical-shot panorama of the landmark commonly known as the Bridge To Nowhere in San Gabriel Canyon in the Angeles National Forest north of Azusa.


The bridge was built in 1936 to accommodate a roadway being constructed connecting the San Gabriel Valley through the canyon to Wrightwood. Devastating floods two years after the bridge's completion washed out the road as well as any plans to rebuild it, leaving those beautiful span connecting nothing more than either side of the gorge it straddles.


A rugged roundtrip hike of about 10 miles will get you from the trailhead to the bridge and back.
