Short, Sweet and Easy. It's not really a hike, but rather a good sight-seeing destination. Mayfield Preserve is an old estate that backs up to a small cove off the Colorado River. The property connects with the Laguna Gloria Art Museum which has a sculpture garden. You could couple these two stops with the nearby Mt Bonnell lookout point, and altogether you would get some real exercise as well as checking off a couple of boxes on your Austin Bucket List.
