Have to climb quite a few steps. Once up there you can enjoy the view of Lake Austin.

“Beautiful Romantic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

This is a park where you climb a couple stairs to get to the spot to see the view, but its well worth the climb. You can come and exercise, take your dog for a walk, or come and have romantic lunch with that special someone. I would suggest to bring a camera to take pics of the beautiful view and tennis shoes. If you go to Austin make sure you go to Mt Bonnell.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

The hike to the top is quite easy and you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the city and neighborhoods. There are both stairs and a long sloping trail to the top.

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

No need for climbing gear to the top- a mountain only by Austin standards.
