The hike is just couple of stairs to the top. Quick trail about 20min. Beautiful view in Austin but mainly visited by tourists so gets crowded.

it's a quick way to get above it all. :) perfect place to take a quick break and get a nice view of downtown skyline and the Colorado. there's picnic tables and plenty of places to perch and soak it in for a bit

Nice view and small loop. TAKE ALL YOUR VALUABLES OUT OF THE CAR. I was just 35 minutes and came back to a smashed window and everything of value stolen.

Went near sunset so it was a little crowded but worth the walk up the stairs for the view of the river and the sunset.

Short & quick walk up to a beautiful view of the Colorado River. We took a few of the trails in the woods leading around the area as well to add extra mileage and time. Once at the top, we followed a cardinal dancing from tree to tree but i couldn't get a great pic of him.

It looks like the view of the skyline was better years ago when the trees weren’t as tall. Don’t follow any of the trail offshoots, because it will be a lot of work for no better of a view. There are also a lot of broken bottles on the other trails off of the main one.

Beautiful view! Steps are a bit strenuous, but doable, and worth the effort.

Nice views but somewhat blocked by the vegetation restoration. Steps were handled ok by by parents (79&81) and of course easy for my 10 yos. Nice leg stretch.

Walking is tiring.

simple trail beautiful veiw. there are about 45 steps going into it.. wasnt too hard. wouldn't be good for people with extreme knee problems. This is one of the mose beautiful vista points in Austin.

Best view in Austin. The hike is really a climb up 100 or so steps, but if you park at the far right of the lot, you can enter to the right and avoid the steps, if needed.

Great view of the neighborhood and water. Not very long and extremely over crowded.
