the world's most spectacular roads

 

Hidden deep in the San Gabriel Mountains, in California, USA, the Bridge to Nowhere is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

The abandoned truss arch bridge is 180 ft long over the San Gabriel . It was meant to be part of a road connecting the San Gabriel Valley with Wrightwood which would be one of the most scenic roads in America. Unfortunately, these thoughts quickly changed when the East Fork Road, which provided access to the bridge, was washed out during a massive flood in 1938, just two years after the bridge’s completion.

  

The abandoned bridge was built in 1936. Despite its popularity, the trail frequently gets washed out and can be very dangerous. Parts of the old asphalt roadway can still be found. Crossing the river to and from the Bridge to Nowhere can be dangerous and even individuals crossing in groups have experienced fatalities. Additional plans were made in the 1950s and the 1960s to once again bring a road to the mountanous terrain -- called Shoemaker Canyon Road -- but was only partially completed, giving it the nickname "The Road to Nowhere."
