“Nice Afternoon Hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

Great view of the city. Perfect for a romantic picnic and afternoon retreat from the busy city. Nice oasis in Austin. Just be sure you wear comfortable shoes, take something to drink with you and don't bring anyone who can't hike up LOTS of steps. It's a little challenging for some, but well worth the expense of energy getting to the top. Nice place to watch the sunset and relax a little.

“Nice view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

Remind us of going to see the Hollywood sign in Cali. Very nice place to have a picnic and walk some trails. The stairs aren't bad at all, burn off that Texas BBQ.

“What a View!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

I had never heard of this spot after almost 2 years in Austin, but a friend told me to take my mom up there for a little sight seeing....it did not disappoint! This would be an excellent spot for a picnic or a special romantic date stop. It's easy to get to, free and very accessible and close to the road. Spend 15 min or 2 hours depending on your available time!

“It's quite a view!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Not everyone can do the climb but for us it was fun and Wow, what a view from the top! Very well worth it. It's a nice thing to do when the weather is not too hot, otherwise make sure you bring water!
