Lovely little hike with mom. Hardest part was carrying her purse, which must give her a strong back and shoulders , haha. Definitely a recommended excursion for outdoorsy people visiting Austin. In addition to the amazing Barton Creek Greenbelt, of course.
Nice stroll and view. Walked up with my wife the day we arrived in Austin.
I was in Austin and this was a nice little diversion from the city. There were nice views of the river. This is a nice photo opportunity.
A little stroll with my 3-year-old goddaughter. Just enough to get her hiking interest piqued. Lovely.
Harmless little diversion.
While in Austin, I took a short visit here. Panoramic views and cliffyness abound. However, while it claims to be the highest point in Austin, you can see several hills in the immediate vicinity that are obviously higher! Liars
Our group went to Mount Bonnell while touring Austin. It was close to 100 degrees on this day. Also, be careful of theft at the parking area.
Watch for beer cans and feces (has to be human because there is nothing else big enough here) on the short staircase up. Austin is a great place to live but...
I visited Mount Bonnell several times circa 1999-2000 when I lived in Austin. Visiting my company's Austin offices last week, I decided to visit again and thought: Wow, this is a great urban overlook! It was hotter than Hades, I thought I was going to die of heat stroke, but the sun making the limestone glow orange, the neat views of the downtown skyline, the gentle Hill Country scenery to the north...definitely worth the short walk.
