18. Climb Mount Bonnell

February 4, 2010

I hope all of you are sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions! We are midway through January so if you have gone this far you are doing good. I have heard that it takes 20 days to make something a habit so in an effort to help all those that want to “work out more” or “drop those extra pounds” how about giving the 102 (give or take) steps up to the top of Mount Bonnell a try.

I debated putting a picture of the view from the top but thought it would be more of an accomplishment to actually get to the top and see for yourself the breathtaking views from the top.

Mount Bonnell is one of Austin’s oldest touring attractions, dating back to the 1850’s as it is the highest point in Austin City Limits reaching 785 feet tall.

It is a FREE activity, when you reach the top you get truly breathtaking views of Downtown Austin and the 360 bridge, it is by far the best place to go for a panoramic view of the city.

To get to Mount Bonnell:
Take 35th Street past Camp Mabry
Go left at the fork onto Old Bull Creek Road
Right on Mount Bonnell Road (You will start to see parking on your left)
