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

Perfect hike/walk if your going with small children. The kids loved going in & out of the cave and the trail wasn't crowded at all in the morning so they were able to run around with no problem. It's an easy up hill walk to the cave and you really do get the perfect view of the Hollywood sign when... More

For us the main feature here was the lovely hike up broad gently climbing pathway that gave wonderful views over the city and hills landscape and also offered some very pleasant birding. We then got to go on the short path (it comes off the higher car park, with a bit of paved road for 40 yds with a red... More

This is a nice, short hike up to the little caves that have been used as film locations for many movies and television shows, besides its claim to fame as the Bat Cave from the Batman movies and series. It was a warm day and the caves were delightfully cool. An added feature is out the far side of the... More
