Fun to see the Batcave!

It's a short hike up a sloping hill to reach this cave, and well worth the effort made to get here. If you ever watched the original Batman TV series, you'll recognize the cave... read more

It's a short hike up a sloping hill to reach this cave, and well worth the effort made to get here. If you ever watched the original Batman TV series, you'll recognize the cave instantly. I could visualize Adam West roaring out of the cave in his Batmobile, Robin at his side- really fun to see this place. When you... More

Parked and hiked up a bit to reach the caves that I found browsing TripAdvisor. We were the only ones there and it was nice break to get away from all the city noise. The area was beautiful to me. Walking around the caves some we saw the best view of Hollywood sign we've got our whole trip!

Still a best kept secret. We went there ar the end of the afternoon. And when we aproached the cave we encountered a family of coyotes. What an up close experience. Through the caves you have a great view on the Hollywood sign up the hills.

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!
