Mount Bonnell is beautiful during any time of the day, but especially at sunset. It is great for a romantic walk, but make sure you wear proper shoes because this is no place for heels, ladies! Keens or hiking shoes are more appropriate for the terrain here. Bring a camera to take some beautiful pics of the sunset! When you get to the top, definitely walk both right and left because you get a cool view from either side.

It is an amazing place where you can see several points of the city including the amazing riverside in one side and downtown on the other side.

It was an unique experience to visit this place on 11 June wit.h my wife vijaya and nephew partha

Not to be missed while you visit Austin TX. The breath taking view of Austin lake on one side and down town on the other is really enjoyable. The panoramic view of water, nature and greenery and sky rocketing towers is awe some. Evenings are better to spend some time here on the hillock from where one can have birds eye view of this historical city of Austin.

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.
