It is in a nice one of Austin's old parks I enjoyed reading about it before climbing the steps. By the way you don't have to climb the steps to get up there. There is s very rocky path you and do to get up there. But the steps were cool. The views were awesome

Very easy to drive up and not a long walk. Our tour guide took us there yesterday. The overview of the city and the Austin Lake was amazing. The bonus was lots of butterflies flying around, and very easy to be photographed. They stay on flowers and even rocks for a long time!

If you are coming from a state with mountains then it will likely not be too interesting. The view was pretty but a little bit of a let down. The top was extremely overcrowded and not well kept with a lot of trash and graffiti. You can get a nice view of the city and the river below. Overall though it is definitely an Austin site that is overrated. Hopefully the city will make some investments to make the park prettier in the future.

Amazing views. A bit of a hike up stairs but worth it. Then trails around the top to get different views. Very peaceful place also.

beware!! even though the trail itself was beautiful, the area is not safe, especially if you are traveling from out of town. i decided to make a stop at mount bonnell on my drive back to houston at around 12pm, which was a huge mistake. i was only gone for about an hour and during that time my windows got smashed, car broken into, and all of my belongings stolen from my car. i should have seen the red flags, but the parking lot area is covered with glass from what i assume to be from previous break ins. there are no cameras from what i saw or police patrolling the area, making it a prime location for thieves to target people. i filed a police report and am still waiting for a response from local enforcement. if you are traveling in the area, be careful!

Nice view of the very nice houses on the water. It was very hot when we were there so the climb up the stairs was a challenge. Not a must see in town, but certainly is nice.

My uncle Billy and I had a great time at hiking but when we returned to our car we witnessed two guys breaking the windows ti get into our truck. At that point my Uncle Billy shot one of them with a pistol he always carry’s and instead of the car thieves getting into trouble - at least the one that wasn’t lying in the pavement in the parking lot, my uncle billy got in trouble . The police said that that stealing from the car wasn’t bad enough to get shot. Luckily they changed their mind and let uncle billy go when they found out he was one of the good guys .

Really nice views of the river and all the rich peoples homes I will never be able to afford. Plenty of people were there but there is plenty of parking. You can either go up the stairs or up a short trail to make it to the top.

We stopped at Mt. Bonnell on a tour. You can either hike up a path to take stairs to get to the top. It is a great view. It was very popular on a Sunday afternoon

We loved the hike and the beautiful views but our rental car window was bashed in and two purses stolen. Dangerous area. We were only gone for 45 minutes and didn't want to haul our purses with. Couldn't believe it. Such a nice area ruined by thieves.
