  • 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. Yo...  more »

  • Got there and they were setting up a movie scene. Its a man made cave specially for movies. Good sight to see when in Griffith Park.
  • It's a beautiful and quiet open space between the mountains. You can see Hollywood Sign from there.
  • Cool sight but nothing crazy. Nice walk and cool pictures.
  • We had a GREAT hike yesterday. Caves look cool. Def man-made
  • I definitely think this place holds much more value with the older sentimental types along with the Movie/TV enthusiasts then it will with people who know what a cave truly is apposed to an old rock quarry. I was reading the reviews from other posts and I'm scratching my head wondering what they're talking about. I was at these so called caves and these aren't real caves at all, more like a man made tunnel used for passage while mining way back when. Nothing about this place looks or feels like it was formed by nature if you pay attention to details as I do. For all the extra time it took to hike down here from the Hollywood sign and then all the way back up to our car at Griffith observatory it was not at all worth it under the false pretense that this was a naturally formed cave that I was lead to believe it was. I'm not implying that you shouldn't come here, or that the surrounding area isn't magnificent I just don't want people to be mislead into thinking it's something it's not. In fact I would recommend coming here just for the experience and the exercise.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
