“Easy hike for great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We stopped here on a recent pass through Austin with our three kids - ages 14, 11 and 8. We were hoping for more of a hike - it is a very easy walk/hike with spectacular views! The kids were sad there wasn't farther to go - so they explored some of the homegrown trails leading off the main path.

“STEPS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Climb those steps for exercise and the VIEW from the top overlooking the lake is beautiful and serene. Relax and enjoy! Read the 'story' of Mt. Bonnell, too!

“Get your excercise on.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Incredible views, many,many steps but so worth it. People are patient and if you are not jogging up to the top they will work around you. I would not bring little kids unless you hold on tight. Nice to bring a thermos or a snack and sit for a while.
