The classic 1966 “Batman” TV series, starring Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin, remains as popular now as ever. Even decades later, some of the locations can still be seen.
Bronson Cave, also known as the “Bat Cave,” can be found in Griffith Park in Los Angeles, California. A very popular hiking spot, simply take the Bronson Cave Trail for about a quarter of a mile and the caves are on the left.

Those who walk through it will also be treated to a nice view of the Hollywood sign on the other side.
