I was so sore the next day! It was a great long hike for me. This would be my third mountain hiking here in USA. The hiking takes about 2 hours and when I got to that East Fork Parking lot in Angeles National Forest, I ran there as soon as possible to go through the water hike so the group do not leave me behind. I think it took me about 1 hour or 1-hour ½ to get there. It started raining and the weather is pretty cold in the mountains. I did a lot of water hiking and your feet will get wet and cold but it is an amazing experience. Make sure you wear light hiking/running shoes. I am glad that they have extra jackets available at the Bridge to Knowhere.
Fun Fact: There was a prison in the mountain area. How do I know this? I got lost getting there and asked a correction officer is I arrived?
The hiking trail was very hard to follow if you are going alone. I was asking a lot the locals to direct me to Bridge to Knowhere. I was going to give up, get a refund and go back. I am glad I didn’t because I get to experience the hardest and longest hike for me. There was no reception but there was GPS service on my Tom Tom navigator. After the jump, getting back to the East Fork Parking lot was not easy, as I did not know where I was heading. The group was advised to hike back on their own after their jump. I followed some local that “I think they know their way back”
There was a village in the mountain.

The Jump: I did one backflip jump. The initial jump was a great adrenaline rush, it was pretty scary at first and after a few screams, I was used to it. One jump was too short. I will do it again for sure if I can find a better deal. I would like to try the front jump.
