Short hike off of Canyon Drive. This is the location where the Batcave was set in the old tv show. It’s actually a tunnel and not a cave. On the other side is a beautiful view of the Hollywood sign. There are two parking lots...More

This was actually a pretty boring adventure. The hike was too short and there really wasn’t much to see. It’s not worth the bother to find parking.

We went to the Bronson caves to take the children to see where the bat cave was. The only problem is that there is not much parking and the roads leading to are very narrow, If you go, go early. The walk is a bit...More

LA has a lot of hiking trails the the one in Bronson is my favorite. Usually not a lot of tourists or maybe just the times I go which is on weekdays. Short walk if you park your car at Bronson. You can also see...More

We first went on a longer hike in the area that is suppose to lead you to the Hollywood sign and that was pretty good, as it had some really nice views and a fairly decent long hike. After that we decided to check out...More

While it is man made. It was still pretty cool. I appreciated the surrounding scenery and that the caves split.

I don't know that you'd call it a hike. You walk a half mile path that looks like a truck access driveway. It is wide and fairly level with a slight gradient. There are no signs, bells or whistles. You simply drive up into Bronson...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

I went at around 4pm in April and it was in good sunlight. The only issue you might have is students from nearby schools use it for projects so you may not get the photos you want. Each of the two different times I visited... More
