If you are in Hollywood this is worth checking out. Not only will you see some movie history but you'll get a nice hike out of it. From Franklin Ave go up Bronson (Gelson's market on corner). Bronson Ave leads to a park. Park in the first lot and take the trail to your right (hard right). If you miss the trail and continue to hike up the road you will be on a much longer trail that leads to the Hollywood sign.
Bronson Caves used to be a quarry that was abandoned in the 1920's. There is a huge list of westerns and sci-fi movies & TV shows filmed here and it was most famously the Bat Cave in the 1960's Batman show with Adam West. Many other TV shows used Bronson Caves for location shoots such as Little House on the Prairie, Dukes of Hazzard and Star Trek Next Generation.
You can hike around and walk through the caves (not really caves as they have pass-throughs) and get a great view of the Hollywood sign. You'l also get a fair bit of exercise. Bring bottled water.
