Bronson Caves aka Bronson Canyon in Griffith Park - Los Angeles, CA
3200 Canyon Dr, Los Angeles, California 90068 USA
Bronson Canyon, or Bronson Caves, was the site of a former 1903 rock quarry that was established to provide pavement for Los Angeles city streets. When the facility was shuttered in the 1920s, several small caves were left behind. The rocky caverns and craggy surrounding canyon have provided Hollywood with a versatile landscape ever since.
The area proved especially fruitful for the Star Trek franchise, masking as several locales including the Rura Penthe mines in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, a Delta Quadrant planet on Voyager, and both a Bajoran settlement and the planet Kesprytt III on The Next Generation.
Though seemingly desolate and remote, Bronson Canyon can be reached via a quick and easy walk that measures less than 2/3 of a mile round-trip. The caves are open daily from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Though striking in and of themselves, they also boast a fabulous view of the Hollywood Sign.
