Mount Bonnell is well worth visiting. A few winding roads then find a parking spot. The hike is more modest than I would have expected, but getting to the top is well worth it. I lived in Austin for 15 years before I came here, but I promise it won't take 15 years to come back.

Walking at the trail to the top of mount Bonnel may be exhausting but quite refreshing but quite interesting and the scenery at the top is surely one of the best. Looking down at the lake and the most impressive houses on the banks of the river is really exhilarating . One feels as though the surroundings are at his feet.

Lots of steps but worth it! Took out of town guests up to see the view. They loved it. Great for taking group pictures.

Mount Bonell will give you one of Austin's greatest sunsets. Perfect place for couples, friends, and families. You can also bring some snacks and have a picnic, there is plenty of space with a good view.

Going to this lookout is the quintessential thing to do in Austin. Follow your GPS, park, walk up, head to the left, and check out the city. Take pictures. When you return to Austin, do it again. I never get tired of going here. It's a great place to take infants, toddlers and children too - just don't let them out of your sight.
