“Highest Point in Austin”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

A long set of stairs takes you to a great view of Lake Austin and a bird's eye view of some of the most expensive real estate in the area. You can avoid the stairs by parking down the road a little bit. Never crowded, lots of stairs.

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

The hike up was worth the breath-taking views! I particularly liked seeing couples hanging around getting their pictures taken.

I totally envy the people who live just by the water! It is worth carrying a picnic up and chilling there or just going up to watch the sun set.

“Mount Bonnell”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

This place is a very high lookout point in the northwest part of the City of Austin.There is a long and fairly steep stairway leading to the top,and it is not suitable for the disabled os people with problems climbing and/or walking.Once at the top,the views to the west are wonderful.It is a nice place to sit awhile and take in the views.There are multiple places to sit and enjor the vistas and the sunset.

“A good hike and view”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

It can be a bit of a drive depending on what part of Atx you are driving from. This is a great hike - DON'T WEAR FLIP FLOPS - and there is a beautiful 360 view from the top.
