One of Austin's oldest tourist attractions, Mount Bonnell is also one of the highest points in the citythere is an incredible view of Lake Austin and the downtown skyline right by the picnic tables. Legend has it that the 99 steps to the top hold enchanting qualities: if a couple climbs the mount once, they fall in love, twice, and they become engaged; three times, and they are destined to be married.
Mt. Bonnell is a GREAT place to go and hang out and walk around the hill country. Unfortunately due to recent vandalization the spot is less attractive at the moment but city officials are working to resolve this problem.
Scale of 1-10, i'd give it an 8
The view is still fantastic, but on the south side of the park, private land ownwers have put up a new home that has changed a lot about the park old visitors may miss. Still worth the effort up the stairs.
The view is breataking. The only downfall is having to walk up all those stairs. Obviously not for elderly or small children. Once you get up there though, you will have a nice view. I went at night when you could see all of downtowns lights. Romantic date idea and it's free!
Mount Bonnell is a great place to go with a date, with the kids, or by yourself to get away from it all. It has gorgeous scenic views and it's a great place to take pictures. Plus, you get quite a little workout climbing up those stairs!
