- Jump from 10 stories high above a raging river with the only company in California licensed to jump from a bridge
- 20 years, not a single injury! You're in the best hands to enjoy your day of excitement
Imagine standing on the edge of a bridge with steep canyon walls rising above you. Looking down at the raging water ten stories below, your palms begin to sweat, your throat becomes dry and your heart beats so hard you feel it through your chest. This is Bungee Jumping.
You'll start your day out with a scenic 5 mile hike along a sparkling mountain river as you wind through the beautiful Angeles National Forest. The hike is of moderate difficulty and takes approximately 2 hours in each direction.
Once you reach the bridge, you'll relax for 15 minutes or so and then you'll go through "jump school" for about 30 minutes. Then it's on! Starting with the lighter weights, the bungee jumping begins! Once you've jumped you can head on out, or hang out and swim by the river.
Join us for this all-day adventure that encompasses more than just bungee jumping, it is an incredible day to truly enjoy the outdoors.
Come join America's oldest operating Bungee company for an adventure you will never forget.

Yes, this experience is safe! The company was founded in 1989 and is the oldest operating bungee jumping company in the United States and the only government certified bungee company in the state of California, they are also Osha Certfied. In 20 years, they have not experienced a single injury of any kind. Their technical knowledge is the best in the world and their safety record reflects that.
Where do we meet?
You will meet us in the city of Azusa which is just off the 210 freeway East of Pasadena. With Azusa near major freeway intersections, we are easy to find no matter where you are coming from. Meeting address and directions are included with your Confirmation at the time of reservation.
How long does it take?
A day of bungee jumping is a full day event. You will meet in Azusa at 7:30AM for registration. In your own vehicle you will follow the experience provider into the Angeles National Forest to the trailhead. You will enjoy a beautiful 5 mile hike to the bridge, spend the afternoon bungee jumping, and return on the 5 mile hike back to your car arriving in the late afternoon. Specific times vary depending on the season.
Is there a minimum or maximum weight limit?
There is a 265 lb maximum weight limit. Jumpers above 265 lbs are allowed upon special arrangement. You must advise the representative at the time of reservation. Additional fees will apply. There is an 80 lb minimum weight limit.
Is there a minimum or maximum age limit?
To begin your career as a bungee jumper you need to be 12 years of age and weigh at least 80 lbs. We have no maximum age limit; however the hike to the Bridge to Nowhere is a rocky, rugged 10 mile (round trip) hike that crosses a river 12 times.
Can two people jump together?
Bungee jumping is highly regulated by the California State Government. For the safety of both jumpers, tandem jumping is prohibited in California thus preventing 2 people from hitting their heads together.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, but we have strict rules regarding dogs: * Dogs must be well socialized with both people and other dogs. * Dogs must be excellent swimmers with swift water river experience. * Dogs must have backcountry experience - this is no place for "Fluffy". * No barking- we are not running a kennel. * All K-9's are required by the Angeles National Forest Service to be kept on a leash. * Do not allow them to do their duty on or near the trail. * The hike is very rocky and usually takes a toll on your puppy's feet. If your dog is not an experienced hiker, their feet may become injured.
Can I upgrade to more jumps when I get there?
Of course. However, if you purchase more jumps the same day (instead of in advance), you will be charged an additional $20 upgrade fee in addition to the additional jump cost.
If I bought multiple jumps will I jump consecutively?
Yes, if you have multiple jumps, you'll go one after the other because you'll already be harnessed in.
How difficult is the hike?
The hike is mostly over a rocky, rugged dry river bed, and we cross the San Gabriel River 6 times. You will want to be prepared to get wet. There is only a 500 ft 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. If you have any doubts of your ability to make the hike we recommend the following: * Walk at a fast pace for 2 hours in soft beach sand, stop at a local restaurant and have lunch and take a rest for a few hours, then return on the beach at a fast pace. If you can accomplish this, you may very well be able to handle the hike to the Bridge to Nowhere.
Can I bring my camera?
Yes, bring all the cameras you want. Don't forget a protective/waterproof case, you will be hiking 5 miles and crossing a river 6 times.
Is lunch provided?
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.
What should I bring?
There are no opportunities to purchase food or supplies once you meet us in Azusa. 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.
What should I wear?
FOR THE HIKE: 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 not allowed 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. FOR THE JUMP: Thin, athletic clothing works great. Shoes or no shoes is your choice. For over 20 years all of the best photos have been taken of people wearing brightly colored clothing. Sorry no capes or speedos allowed.
