abandoned but not forgotten.
Thread started by popsiclekid at 05.9.09 - 2:51 pm

I am at the time in my young life that i have heard many come to, a i time where urban exploration is something you cant stop thinking about.

when i used to live in london i could go to a park and walk into the woods sit down on a tree and not see a single person or anything to remind me of people and thats one thing i miss and i havnt found in la.

basically i would love to go exploring in abandoned places such as tunnels, subways, factories, air force bases. and others.

I have heard about the nike air base and the UCLA steam tunnels which i will definetly check out, BUTT CAN ANYONE GIVE ME MORE.


imagine how good you will feel to no you led a little teenager into the wild (no money burning and not dieing) to find himself.



the list of abandoned places starts now.

Have you ever ridden along the 110 bike path? It starts where San Fernando Road goes under the 110 at the North end, and drops you off near Dodger stadium at the South end. It's about a door-width wide, completely overgrown with shrubs, and has some great views of LA.

aww... What made you think of me? Cuz yeah, I totally DO miss being able to hike into a thick wooded area and just lose myself to nature. I used to do that all the time in Missisauga/Toronto/Niagara/wherever Ontario. I'm going to Toronto in a couple of weeks, and I plan on doing some serious hiking then.

But yeah, keep us posted on these little ventures around L.A. I'm in.

Popsicle Kid e al:

I highly recommend the abandoned zoo at Griffith Park.

If that's too easy, and you're willing to get off your bike and hike, I highly recommend the abandoned compound in Rustic Canyon behind Will Rogers State Park. You have to hop up a muddy riverbed for a couple of miles, but there are weird old concrete structures covered in greffiti and a waterfall (weather permitting), so it's worth a day hike.

If enough folks are interested and don't mind a very SLOW wander, I'd be happy to take y'all out there.

"The abandon compound is the abandon Nazi camp, yes? I've been told I need to go check it out. I'd be up fo dat!"

Yes, that's what it is. It's a long and ridiculous story.
(And not very well known, because nobody wants neo-Nazis in the Pacific Palisades (or, well, anywhere).)
http://crimesofthefree.blogspot.com/2005/10/nazi-commune-ruins.html

"There's also something called the shroom room in da hills. Anyone hear of that?"

I'm guessing that might be one of the concrete buildings in the compound, but there might be another one.

Let's do an afternoon trip a few Sundays from now.

There used to be this old, Air Force communications bunker up near Helendale.
Rooms and tunnels going hundreds of feet down, old equipment lying around, I always wanted to check this thing out since hearing about it three years ago.

But, parties and such were always held here, which usually tends to bring out the riff-raff.
Sadly, two kids were shot during a rave out there in '07, and the BLM, along with the USAF, tore the thing down.

They didn't have to tear it down, but the parents had their heads up the wrong ass and thought destroying it would make their lives better, or something.

Starting a closed google group in regards to exploring abandon sites is not a bad way to go. I myself am a bit reluctant to disclose too much since there's no control over who reads it. My apprehension is regarding vandalism. I believe that things should be left as they were found. Not everyone subscribes to that belief. So I would like to see a group where everyone knows everyone and most importantly follows the same creed.

I have a few ideas for places to go in LA and number of sites outside. Would be great to compile a list too.

I think these rides would be small enough that we could keep the vandalism to a minimum, especially in daylight with no liquor stops.

Does anybody know about the Pacific and Electric subway tunnel through downtown?

Supposedly it's sealed off, but it would be pretty sweet if we could get in.

Yeah those tunnels are sealed shut. There's one entrance that you have to go through this building, and passed this security guard to get in. That's on Hill street I believe. There's other stuff that's pretty cool and downtown that you can go to. Search for underground tunnels on this site. There's a thread on it.

This reminds me of this one area where there's a train line that does a complete circle to make a turn. So instead of doing a 90 degree turn, the tracks do a complete circle. Train nerds and terrorists knows where this spot is. I believe it's in California or somewhere in the Southwest.
