- 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.

This parking lot is located inside the Angeles National Forest, 30 minutes north of the city of Azusa, CA. 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 adventure. You will meet the experience provider at the trailhead at your designated meeting time. You 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 just before dark.
Is there a minimum or maximum weight limit?
There is a 265 pound maximum weight limit. Jumpers above 265 pounds 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. There is 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.
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?
You are welcome to bring your Go-Pro camera and appropriate mounts. Cameras may not be hand-held. The Jump Master has the final decision on whether you can jump with your camera. The experience provider is not responsible for property damage or personal injury as a result of jumping with you camera. Don't forget a protective/waterproof case, as 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 you 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 begin the hike. 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 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.
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.
Can I upgrade to more jumps when I get there?
Yes, you can upgrade your jump package both prior to your hike to the bridge or once at the bridge itself. You will simply pay the difference in the package price. If purchasing at the bridge please bring cash and know that there is a $20 upgrade fee. Upgrades are allowed based on the availability of the day.
Can I bring my friends with me if they don't want to jump?
Friends and family are always welcome to join, however they must register online with the experience provider and pay a non-refundable $10 fee. The fee allows access to the facilities at the bridge as well as the guided hike. If spectators decide they'd like to jump while at the bridge the $10 fee will be applied towards their jump. If purchasing a jump at the bridge, please know that the jump must be paid for in cash and there is a $20 late registration fee.
While the jumps are taking place spectators can watch from the bridge or hang out in the river below while catching some rays.

"I planned this trip for myself and 11 of my friends, and Cloud 9 and Bungee America made it very easy for me to plan. Cloud 9 and Bungee America delivered helpful directions multiple times as well as lists of how to prepare for the trip. The guides were on-time, friendly, fun, and enthusiastic. Bungee America has been doing jumps for 25 years, and it showed. They were extremely knowledgeable and concerned for your safety, well-being, comfort, and happiness. The very first thing they do when you arrive to the jumping site is run through the many safety measures and back-up safety protocols, which impressed me. Overall it was an enjoyable experience, and me and my friends will definitely be returning and strongly recommending the jumps in the future. "
