great starter goes young kids, they love the cave

Nice walk. Mostly flat & paved. Very peaceful! Easy workout. Nice views from the dam. I saw a couple deer last time I was there ❤️

Really neat nature walk (considering it's roughly 0.2 miles one way lol) it's a very interesting cave. Despite it being really short it's a definite must visit as the surrounding area is really interesting as well. Got to see a group setting up the area for a future Toyota commercial so that was also cool.

A pretty short and neat trail. Just for some walking and great for dogs. The cave is pretty cool and small. Would go back again.

Lots of parking if you come around 7-7:30. After that it gets packed on a Saturday.

Closed. Fire.

The trail is closed :(. Due to fire damage!

Loved this trail. Nice walk by the lake with my girl and a nice workout once you reach the hill trail.

Fuck ya

Honestly, the "hike" itself -- a short, gentle climb up a very wide fire road -- is nothing to write home about.

But, Holy Mackerel, Batman! It leads... to the Batcave! At least in the campy 60's TV series.

It's still a fun place to take out-of-town visitors or young kids. In addition to the small cave, stone labyrinth, and views of the Hollywood sign, you have a good chance of seeing some kind of shoot, as the caves remain a popular filming location.

Hikes for all tastes and ages: you can walk around a small pond, around a larger lake, or go all the way to a top of the hill to the south.

This is a short hike with a bit of history. The Caves were leftover from mining operations in the 1920s and later used in the campy Batman TV series. Remember... "To the Batcave"?

Super chill loop around Lake Hollywood. The fencing around the lake are not appealing but the views when you get to the bridge are nice. Cool to see the Hollywood sign with a lake in front of it. As easy as it gets so fun to take anyone along.

Very ugly view. All you are looking at for the most part is barb wire....not inspiring. If you want to walk on sand and stare at barb wire in direct heat, this trail is for you.

Good short walk with a few different areas to see. I particularly love a small pond filled with koi, ducks and turtles. There is a larger lake as well. Great hike overall, now a normal spot for me.

P.S.
If you go to the small pond there is a goose/duck there that looks like a cross between a vulture and duck. Its name is Duckasaurus. Say hi if you get the chance!

Beautiful hike with shade, views, and a range of terrain and scenery. Great for a short hike on a lazy day to build an appetite.

Good quick hike, awesome pond

Looks like there was a firestorm through here. All of the trees and shrubbery are dead.

Asked a fellow hiker about this and they said that it becomes green in the Winter. Going to come back then.

Nice walk. Saw many birds. Went on Sunday and there was a ranger on premise.

Nice hike with friends. Saw a couple deer and a few turtles

I wish it would be longer but it’s still a nice stroll. Good place to get away and clear your head.

Excelente en un dia soleado ya que hay bastante sombra durante casi todo el camino .. solo un consejo lleven calzado apto para el terreno al llegar a la cascada pueden escalar un poco ... ahorita no hay agua pero aun asi vale la pena caminar por aqui el recorrido es muy facil ...

Definitely a walking trail that has many turns anf will make you want to sprint to see what’s at the end of the path. You can see the Hollywood sign, but unfortunately the trail doesn’t lead to it.

I've walked this trail plenty of times. Usually to take some friends that just want a simple walk in the woods that isn't too strenuous. Though it isn't my favorite. As other have mentioned parking is minimal and it is pretty congested. It's great after showers. If it wasn't for the crowd and location I would've given it another star. Bottom line: neat trail, parking sucks, initial paved road, and congestion.

We loved this hike and did the full loop. I’m so glad for the other reviewers’ notes. We came prepared with a pen to fill out the parking fee form and the $4. We also arrived by 8:30 AM — there were two other cars in the parking lot (by the time we left there were about 6 cars). Unlike another reviewers notes, there are actually two parking lots, and it looks like they hold about 6-7 cars each.

There is a full-time resident ranger on the property, which is great. We also left no visible belongings in our vehicle to prevent any possible theft interest — you’re out in the wilderness and quite a ways from nearby rural-area homes, so someone would really have to go out of their way to drive up the meandering road to get to cars and break in.

The bathrooms are well maintained, compared to other California facilities.

We used the GPS continually from All Trails and were super glad to have it because there are many trails in the this area. From the get-go we started on the wrong trail, and the GPS reoriented us and kept us in the right spot. Thank you!

We found the trail to be fairly well maintained. There are some inclines that require some average fitness, but nothing too bad. And you do have to keep watching that you don’t stumble over a rock, because much of the trail has rocks that could trip you up. The scenery is fantastic!!! Highly recommend.

Basically a flat walk on a paved utility road. But - pretty mountain and lake scenery, nice vibe. Good walk for single females wanting to be safe, there are plenty of people around, including park rangers. There is an additional trail to the east that branches off near the southern end of the lake and goes up to Mulholland Drive if you want more of a workout.
