From boutique shopping, restaurants and art galleries to historical and picturesque weekend destinations, you don’t have far to travel to experience all that Austin has to offer. If you’re looking for something to do near your Austin luxury real estate, then you should visit Mount Bonnell.

Boasting a bird’s eye panoramic view of Lake Austin, the Austin skyline and the Pennybacker Bridge, Mount Bonnell is the perfect spot for exercise enthusiasts who enjoy hiking and nature buffs looking for a relaxing place to have a picnic. It’s also a great backdrop for special occasion photography sessions to celebrate an engagement, wedding or graduation.

The overlook area has two access points: a rocky trail from the north and a steep set of stairs at the south end. However, don’t let that discourage you. Neither access point represents a major hike. Just make sure to wear a sensible pair of shoes and pack your water bottle and sunscreen.

Park hours are from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., so there is plenty of time to get out and explore.

Mount Bonnell offers a great weekend destination. However, if you wish to enjoy beautiful lake views from the comfort of your own home, then consider giving us a call. We’re a builder on Lake Travis that can help you design a custom home with a luxurious outdoor living space that features peaceful views of the water.
