Mount Bonnell - Search Nearby - Added by Kyle Obermann

Take in the view from the summit Mount Bonnell (775 ft), one of the highest points in Austin.

The trail up is a combination of manmade and natural stairs that take you up to the top. At the summit, you will find beautiful views of the area, and a pavilion where you can have a picnic lunch.

To head back down by a different route, continue on the northern trail, which will take you past more scenic views, then down to the north end of the parking lot.

A staple have to in Austin. Great views- the best you'll see in the whole city.

Good View, That's It

You climb some stairs to get to the view and the trail is about 100 meters long tops
