It's said that if a couple climbs the 100 stairs to the top of Mount Bonnell once, they fall in love; twice, they'll become engaged; and after three times, it's inevitable they'll get married.
One of the oldest recorded tourist attractions in the Austin area and the highest point within Austin's city limits, Mount Bonnell offers fantastic sunset views of Lake Austin and the 360 Bridge.
There is a legend that Mt. Bonnell was once called Antoinette's Leap, named after a damsel who leaped to her death to avoid capture from Indians that killed her lover after he defended her.
Must take out of town guests here for great view
Climb to the top of Mount Bonnell to see ATX and its surrounding environs at this popular look-out (and make-out) spot. Hands down the best place to get some perspective.-Jason, our Homesick Austinite
No trip to Austin is complete without a stop at Mt. Bonnell, the highest "peak" in the Austin area. Anytime is good, but sunset can be spectacular across the panoramic view.
Park at the far end with the gate and walk the path for an easier trip up and down
If you're in highschool, definitely bring a chick up here to make out.
A great workout walking up the stairs!
I married my beautiful wife here!!
As you're walking around, don't forget to look down. There could be some beautiful scenes at your feet begging to be captured. Look for leaves or pretty stones that stand out and shoot away!
You can easily climb the rafters for a better view of the sunset. Great for photography.
It is very beautiful and will stay that way if you take your trash with you. Please don't litter!
Came here 5 days after our 35th wedding anniversary. The romance helps the marriage stay happy.
Don't wear heels!
Amazing view, get ready to climb a lot of stairs
Walked the 100-steps that the History Channel advised. let's see if it works!
If you haven't been to Mt. Bonnell, you're missing out on one of Austin's most scenic and beautiful views. It's the perfect location for a romantic date.
Great side paths for better views once you get to the top
so romantical. :)
Awsome view totally worth the 100 flight of stairs
Climbing the 102 steps you'll find one of the best look out points in Austin. The 360 view of Austin and the Texas Hill Country is always spectacular, but sunsets there are really incredible.
Whether or not you believe the love tales surrounding Mt. Bonnell, this is still the best place in ATX for a view of the surrounding cityscape and hill country. Bring a picnic, a sweetheart or both.
♫ You ain't seen a hill country sunset ♫
Summer sunsets at Mt. Bonnell are hard to beat - don't forget your camera!
Scare people on the stairs at night
Gentleman: this is a beautiful spot to take your dates!
Haven't been back to Mt. Bonnell in a couple of years. It's about time.
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.
Be ready for a great hike
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.)
Lots and LOTS of stairs to get up here, but the views and the sunsets are incredible.
Holy shit the view tho
Great place to bring friends or family who are in town visiting
Beautiful views of the city. A must see!
Whether you want to see water, downtown, or hills this is the perfect place to be! Bring your camera and some water and relax with a great view!
A spell bounding view of the lake and nature, scenic drive and scenic views. Romantic as well.
Climb to the top at sunset and see all of Austin!
We got married here in 2000, 45 people attended. This is highest publicly accessible spot in Austin.

Park at the base to walk up the hill.
