Distance: 19 miles and 900 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)
All three routes go to the caves. While the long and medium add some additional sights, this short goes directly there and back. The trip over to the caves stays with the medium riders most of the way as you ride through Hollywood. The medium splits off for its trip to Lake Hollywood and this short heads directly to the caves. At the caves this short is again rejoined by the medium route. After viewing the caves, the two routes stay together as they ride over to Griffith Park to stop for lunch at the entrance to the park. After lunch, they make a direct return to the start. The profile shows a few hills near the caves site, but they are not too long or too steep. The highest point is only about 600 feet above the start location.
