The Mount Hollywood Trail, also known as the Charlie Palmer Trail, winds uphill through the Griffith Park and is a must-visit for outdoor and nature enthusiasts.

Stop at the beautiful Dante Garden on your way to the summit.
Located in Griffith Park, Bronson Caves. also called Bronson Canyon, was created because of an old quarry dug in 1903 by the Union Rock Company in order to mine materials to use in building the surrounding streets. After the quarry closed in the 1920s, it became a spot for movie shoots because of its rocky and unique landscape. Scenes from Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Army of Darkness were shot here, as well as the original Batman TV show. The park has hiking trails, picnic tables and, of course, caves.
This serene burial ground is sculpted out of a beautiful, green countryside, where leafy canopies, birds and flowers add to the sense of calm and spirituality. The top choice among local Jews for memorials, this cemetery is also the final resting place of many Hollywood and TV stars: Norman Fell, Lee J. Cobb and Danny Arnold, to name a few. More recent burials include famous journalist Daniel Pearl and producer Gregg Hoffman. Jewish culture and tradition is reflected in the park's architecture and design. Call for more details.
This is one of the final resting places of Hollywood stars, and suitably overlooks the Universal, Disney and Warner Brothers studios in North Hollywood. Though huge in its own right, the park is smaller than its Glendale counterpart, located just 10 minutes away, and there aren't too many celebs buried here. Well-known names include Lucille Ball, Gene Autry, Ricky Nelson and Steve Allen. The place also salutes the American Revolution with “The Birth of Liberty”, allegedly the largest historical mosaic in the world, and life-sized bronze statues of erstwhile presidents. Models of old-world churches also dot the scene, adding to the ambiance. Admission is free and hours are seasonal. Gather some stardust!
