It's a short and easy hike up to this famous cave/tunnel. The most obvious famous use of this tunnel was as the Batcave entrance on the 60's Batman television show. The tunnel is actually only about 75ft or so long but with the right camera angles you can't see the outlet on the opposite side. When you go to the... More

It is a fun way to get in shape and have a great view of the city. If you are visiting LA, this is a must go... you will get plenty of scenic pictures to show to friends and family. -bring a lot of water since there are not much shade on this hike. - when you arrive at Canyon... More

First, not many people hiking up in that area even know what the Bronson caves are. We stopped and asked about 8 people after parking where to go - no one knew. We finally found a couple who directed us in the right direction. Easy 10 minute walk up a gradual hill to the caves. Some of the directions on... More

This was a nice, short hike in a park in a semi residential area. The caves are small and would be fun on their own but much are much more of an experience if you are a fan of the old Batman series. You can take in the view of the Hollywood sign from the back side of the caves... More

Bronson Caves is really easy to find. Especially if you don't use Google Maps. Just go up the Canyon Drive all the way to the end you'll see you small parking lot on the left that serves about 15 cars. It also says Hollywoodland Park. As you come up Canyon Drive the signs say Park Road Closed Ahead, pay no... More

Yes, we wanted to see the H'wood sign on our first visit to LA... we parked in Bronson Canyon-Griffith Park lot, took a short hike to caves used in some TV & movies (The batcave!), and as you come out of the cave, BAM, POW! There is the Hollywood sign on cue!

Being a product of the 1960's I have always been a huge Batman & Robin fan. I have seen all the original Batman shows (multiple times) and I still re-watch them to this very day. The one part I enjoyed the most from the show was the "Batmobile" as it left the bat cave. As I arrived here today at... More

I absolutely love this hike. Try to come early because parking lot is not very big and fills up very quickly. There are restrooms (portable ones) at the parking lot. Before we head to Hollywood Sign, we always swing by the Bronson cave (bat-cave); which used to be the cave of batman Adam West. Trail is very wide, steep at... More

My kids loved going to the Bat Cave and the view of the Hollywood sign from the other side was awesome! It's hard to imagine that more people don't go here.

This was one of the many Doors/Morrison pilgrimage stops we made during our vacation, and are we ever glad we found it! There is a small parking lot at the end of the street. From there, go back and take the trail to the left (it is not labelled as Bronson Caves). That trail will lead you there. It is... More
