Getting to and from there is just as great as the view after your short ascent. The winding drive along the river was quite a treat.

This might be the old Austinite in me but it used to be more open for you to enjoy. I feel caged in now. Still worth a visit every so often but not what it used to be.

This is not a desert location. This is a beautiful overlook of the Colorado River and the beautiful homes on the river. The fun part of this overlook are the steep stairs getting to it. Bring a bottle of water... you will probably need it.

Park your car and lock everything in the trunk. Aging walkways but a popular attraction with picnic tables in concrete. Take your binos and camera

The river view was amazing. Nice for picture taking and short hike and run. Though the terrain was a little rugged, you need to bring a good pair of running shoes or sneakers.
