“The most beautiful sightseeing venue for all tourists”

This is like the Pikes's Peak of Austin. The most wonderful view of of The city of Austin from the highest point.
We love taking our visitor's to the top and take breathtaking photograph what Austin is all about.
Beautiful lake with fabulous lake properties with private docks, wonderful view of the Downtown and the scenic hill country beauty of Austin.

“Who doesn't love Mount Bonnell?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Going up Mount Bonnell to enjoy the sunset has been an Austin tradition for decades. It's an easy walk, it's gorgeous, it's peaceful, it's family-friendly. A great way to spend an evening.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

There is nothing special about this place. It is around 10 minute walk up the stairs and you reach the hill. You can view Lake Austin from there and downtown. Thats it !!!

“Easy (stair)climb, great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Climbing the stairs up to the peak with 4- and 6-year-old boys was no problem. There are even a few picnic tables up there for a snack and drink. The kids loved exploring the little paths around the top, and I didn't worry about them other than the accidental brush against a cactus. Nice view of both downtown Austin in the distance on one side and the lake down below on the other.
