View Lake Austin and the mountains of West Lake and beyond once you climb up the paved stair case. It's not a hard walk, just wear proper shoes. Parking is good. You will find many people enjoying the view with a glass of wine.......and more.

Easy to find. Nice walk. Great scenery. Fun to read about this history on the signs. Don't leave valuables in your car as the car parked next to mine was broken into.

Nice walk and gives a good view of the beautiful homes on Ladybird Lake. There is a small hill to climb at the beginning and you can choose from several different short trails to walk on.

beautiful place to go up and clear your head. We went up and had lunch at a picnic table and had a view of the city. The view of the river is amazing from up there! plus its free! definitely worth the trip!

Yes, this is the place. The place your fratboy friends snapped a pic. Its a fantastic view, but who wins the award on tripadvisor for this? I want to see some documentation! Other than that, take a hike and get your insta outta here! Enjoy the view, it's much cheaper than driving to the Grand Canyon.

This is a must see for nature lovers! There are stunning views! It is a pretty steep climb by stairs. So it may be a bit difficult for those out of shape or in bad health.

Gave a different view and perspective of the Austin area because we had only been on the downtown side. Take the hike, it is worth it!

A nice drive through the hills ends with a walk up 106 steps to the viewing area at Mt. Bonnell, For those who cache, there's one there. Great views of the Colorado River. Never been there at sunset but am told by friends that it's spectacular.
