Park, Natural Feature
Mount Bonnell is one of Austin’s historic landmarks, attracting visitors since the 1850s and still offering one of the best views of Austin. There’s a small hiking trail with man-made stairs that lead up to various viewing spots. You can enjoy the scenes of the Colorado River and admire the mansions along the river’s edge. If you look carefully, you may even spot Sandra Bullock’s mansion that she recently sold. The best time to visit is during sunset, but expect crowds.
