    So beautiful scenery!

    Very beautiful place with picturesque view. Our friend had a wedding ceremony there. However very hot and no place to hide from sun :) be prepared for rocky ground, you'll need very comfortable shoes

    102 short steps of suffering and then an amazing view of river and million dollar boat garages? My kind of hike!!

    Breath taking view of Mount Bonnell, Austin, Texas. Remember to bring your camera :) Stones can be super slippery when wet. https://youtu.be/xRw3R_UU6KY

    Don't miss the sunset! One side has great views of downtown while the other has a view of the 360 Bridge. Also fun to see all the huge houses and pretend like you could own them!

    Don't let the stairs scare you. It's a short way up and once you get up top it'll just be an easy stroll. Great views of the river!

    Really nice hiking trail, a bit short but gives you a great view of the lake from above

    Beautiful scenic overlook. Romantic. Caution: Lots of steps & uneven ground.

    Great spot to bring a loved one for a lunch picnic since they have a few picnic tables and a nice spot to catch the sunset!

    On your way down stop by Mayfield Park and check out the peacocks that roam around! They fan their tails around February and go on until ~April.

    One of the best views of Austin, but you will need to work for it with all the steps. Famous as a make out spot for teenagers and one of the best step workouts for all!

    Most people drive to the stairs. The true test is if you park at the bottom of Mt Bonnell Rd and walk to the stairs!! What a workout!

    A must for any visitor. Sweeping views of the Hill Country & Downtown Austin. A nice hike up the steps too! Bring food & drink for a picnic at the top.

    If you are a garden ornament, get a very nice lass to carry you up. (Promise her cuddles at the top, it's very romantic at sunset, and frankly the polite thing to do.)
