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.
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.
Came here 5 days after our 35th wedding anniversary. The romance helps the marriage stay happy.
Walked the 100-steps that the History Channel advised. let's see if it works!
It is very beautiful and will stay that way if you take your trash with you. Please don't litter!
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
Beautifoul Austin View. Better on sunshine.
Awsome view totally worth the 100 flight of stairs
Don't wear heels!
Amazing view, get ready to climb a lot 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.
so romantical. :)
Lovely views over Austin.
The view is amazing especially late evening in the fall colors. Great photo ops:-)
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.
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!
♫ You ain't seen a hill country sunset ♫
A spell bounding view of the lake and nature, scenic drive and scenic views. Romantic as well.
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.
Great views!! This look out spot has great Trails for light hiking.... The 100 plus stair way up is a great start!! ✌️
climb the steps and get an epic view of Lake Austin and Town Lake, ATX, hill country, and the 360 bridge
Breathtaking views and sunsets.
The sunsets are amazing. It's a great place to clear your head also.
Beautiful view! Go m-when it's not so packed
See @ sunrise or sunset
Gorgeous sunset views. An Austin must-see.
A beautiful view of Lake Travis & Austin!
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!
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.
