Take a break from midterm szn and come out on the trail for a day of great hiking, great views, and even better company! The Bridge to Nowhere was originally built as part of a highway that would lead from LA to the Mojave Desert, but after a flood wiped out part of the road, the bridge became abandoned. Now, it‘s a fun destination for hikers and bungee jumpers! This iconic bridge is a must-see, so get excited for a really rewarding day!
