ADT Guide Waypoint: CA6-12 - The No Hands Bridge

Once known as the Mountain Quarries Railroad Bridge, the bridge was completed on March 23, 1912. At the time, it was the longest concrete arch bridge in the world. The name "no hands" came from the veteran equestrian, Ina Robinson, who would drop her reins to ride her horse across the then guardrail-less bridge!
