Catch a Sunrise at the Look Out Point

Rate this Adventure 0.1 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Erin Newman-Mitchell

A great, free, and easily accessible overlook of the Austin skyline.

This look out point is less than a quarter mile hike and is located within the Rollingwood neighborhood, just west of Loop 1 (Mopac Expressway). It faces east and is a great location for catching sunrise. The trail to the overlook is crushed gravel, but is very flat.

This overlook is kid- and dog-friendly, just be sure to clean up after them! There are also no bathrooms nearby.
