The Bridge to Nowhere

Trail Thoughts and Musings

In 1919, Highway 5 connecting Los Gatos and Santa Cruz was completed with the road being paved in 1921. This bridge was once part of this now ghost roadway. The road was replaced by the four lane highway we know as Highway 17. This bridge was built in 1926 and served faithfully for many years. It now carries only the silt from the runoff of Black Creek.
