“Austin Icon, great view”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We love to climb and relax this historic place. It's a great view of Austin and we take out of town guests there as well, who always enjoy it.

“VERY easy walk”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

To get from the car to the top takes about 5 minutes. VERY easy. Pretty views from the top and won't take much time out of your day to mark this off your list.

“Easy hike for great views”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We stopped here on a recent pass through Austin with our three kids - ages 14, 11 and 8. We were hoping for more of a hike - it is a very easy walk/hike with spectacular views! The kids were sad there wasn't farther to go - so they explored some of the homegrown trails leading off the main path.
