Pretty views!

This is an easy though uphill hike with gorgeous views. We didn't see any of the wildlife we expected to see, but it was fun all the same!

Not worth the hassle
Jul 2021 • Family
My first time visiting this location only to have my car window broken into and my belongings taken. It only took the individuals 5 minutes from the time I left. According to my dash cam recording activity. Here are some pictures of the individuals my dash cam recorded. Not only that but they use my debit and credit cars at target. Wish I could have share the video of the individuals complaining about not being able to get my belongings and that's when the individuals that appear in my cam when to hel the other person.

Beware of smash and grab
Jun 2021 • Couples
We were looking forward to going up for the view until we noticed at least 15 parking spaces with broken auto glass in them and decided not to risk it. We found out from some locals that these car break-ins are an issue. Someone is watching people go up and if they put stuff in their trunk or if a woman takes purse with her. No security cameras around. So bummed because it really is a great view.

Incredible view!

This is a must for a little exercise & an incredible view of The Colorado River. There are not that many steps & when you get to the top keep walking to the right a bit for the best view. It’s a very beautiful spot!

Little trails with million dollar views
Jun 2021 • Couples
Short rocky trail along a cliff edge with views of the Colorado river and millionaires mansions. There are a few stairs to climb at one end of the loop.

Great for a quick stop and/or picnic
May 2021
Quick visit in the middle of the day to see the vantage point from up top. When you get there, make sure you go to the left first and then go back and keep going straight to see it from the top on the right side as well.

Garbage bins on site at the bottom and top. Takes about 2 minutes to climb the stairs. No restrooms.

waste of time
May 2021
Our car was broken into in broad daylight! Mutliple cars were also broken into in the same time frame. The lookout was filled with litter. Not worth the risk if you don't want to spend your trip getting your window replaced, etc. It's been two days and we still haven't heard from the police to file a report.

Nice view
Apr 2021 • Couples
A short climb up about 100 stairs and you will come upon a beautiful view of Lake Austin and the Austin skyline. There isn’t anything to do up there but look around.
I did see a lot of broken glass in the parking lot. Car windows and beer bottles. Be sure not to leave anything in your car.

Car Break In (Beware!)
Apr 2021 • Couples
If you read about car break ins, guess what, they’re still happening. Our car window was smashed in during broad daylight with rows of other cars and people walking in and out of the park. They stole a pursue. They even hit another car (Lexus) and stole her purse as well. All in a matter of 30 minutes. Terrible location despite feeling safe among the fancy houses and number of people flowing through. No police or cameras on site, zero support. Do not recommend unless you travel here by foot.
