This majestic 1913 causeway is lined by antique lampposts and provides a scenic entryway into the heart of Pasadena. So scenic, in fact, that it inspired more than 100 people to take a final 160-foot plunge before it was renovated to include a suicide-prevention fence. Best approached from the west, this short stretch of Historic Route 66 crosses over the Arroyo Seco into the heart of the city. As you pass, you are afforded a great view of the approaching city, particularly the old buildings and homes on the other side of the ravine.
