Cool place, whether you're a Batman fan or not!

Short hike up a gradually sloping hill to the Batcave from the original Batman series. Saw some college students setting up to shoot a short film for their classes. Also... read more

I went to Bronson Caves with some friends. We wanted to see a few sights where old B movies and the Batman television series was filmed. It was a nice short hike to the cave with pretty scenery all around. The caves are easy to access. You can walk in and around the caves. From the east side of the... More

A must see for Batman fans and a cool day out for the kids (can be combined with a picknick and the playgrounds of the park). It's a moderate hike up to the caves that can be accomplished in about 10 min. with the possibility to go up a little further to catch a great view on the Hollywood sign.... More

Not everyone will see a clown in Bronson caves (no, it wasn't the Joker). The walk up from the last parking lot on Canyon Dr was only about a quarter mile. The cave is actually a tunnel that goes through the giant rock. The tunnel splits into 3 separate tunnels each one smaller that the first. We did not try... More

YES! My bucket list is complete! One of my all-time desires was to personally visit the Bronson Caves. Seen in many popular TV shows and movies, the caves have always intrigued me. It was the bat cave entrance in the 1966-68 Batman TV show. It has also been seen in lots of 1950s Sci-Fi and horror movies. In fact, about... More

First of all a nice hike. Then you go through the famous cave where Will Rogers filmed his famous (It's all famous) rescue scene. then you walk through and welcome to a Star Trek episode. Keep going nice mountains and Presto a great view of the Hollywood sign. You getting the picture yet. This is a good spot!!!!!!

The cave is a short, uphill walk in Griffith Park. It is the cave that was used in the original "Batman" TV series. It's not really a cave but a tunnel but fun anyway. Have to imagine it with greenery around it and a drop-down fence. Just a blast from the past.

It's not a cave it's a tunnel you can walk though. It's a very short walk (< 1/2 mile) from the parking lot and free, You can walk around the hill it's in and get a nice view of the Hollywood sign. It's a 15 minute to 1/2 hour curiosity. You can hike to the rest of Griffith Park from... More

Short hike up a gradually sloping hill to the Batcave from the original Batman series. Saw some college students setting up to shoot a short film for their classes. Also, provides a decent view of the Hollywood sign from just outside the cave. Get there early a.m. to find some decent parking or you'll find yourself with a much longer... More

Bronson caves is really an old stone quarry from the 1920's. The tunnels have been used forever for film and TV production and photo backdrops. We once saw some fashion photographers there, taking pics of girls. You never know what you'll see there.
