A Return to the Bronson Caves

Sunday, February 24th, 2013
At the Batcaves of Griffith Park

                                     Join us for an afternoon of readings with
         Amelia Gray, Sergio Hernandez, Liz Stephens, Lauren Strasnick and Antoine Wilson

To Get to the Batcaves/Bronson Caves:

From Franklin Ave., head towards the Hollywood Sign on either Bronson Ave. or Canyon Dr.
Bronson eventually merges into Canyon, so it doesn't matter which street you take as long as you keep heading up the hill. Canyon Drive runs right into Griffith Park. There will be a parking lot on your right. Park here or along the road.
The trail is actually right above the parking lot. You will see the tops of people's heads. To find the proper trail head, walk to the far north side of the parking lot (the opposite direction from which you drove.) You will walk along the road for a minute or two. Ahead will be another small parking lot to your left-- straight ahead is the trail to the Hollywood Sign-- although this is an awesome hike, it is not the way to the caves. To get to the reading, follow the pink curb to the right. This will lead to the entrance to the wide, heavily trafficked and easy to find trail to the caves. The caves are a five-seven minute walk from the parking lot. Pictures of the trailhead and trails are below.

You will find us inside the caves, most likely along the back entrance. We will have some chairs set up, and will try to put up signs to point you in the right direction.
