Short-walk with a great reward. I have visit Mount Bonnell at least a dozen times. Best time to go is for sunset/ dusk. I proposed to my wife here. it has a great view over lake Austin.

One of the best views in Austin, TX. There is a short climb to get there, but well worth the effort. A must see for visitors!

Lots of stairs but found another entrance that was a trail up the mountain. Lots of unpaved trails, wear comfortable shoes. The view is worth the walk.

I believe so. Leash is recommended. I don’t think there are any restrictions for dogs.

It is not long at all, the hard part is the stairs but u can avoid that by going through the farther entrance . If u decide to take the stairs it might be like 5 to 8 min up.

I recommend a flat sidewalk around a park instead; but if you specifically want to make the climb for the views, I would recommend taking a friend to assist you.
