After a long walk up the 100 or so steps at Mount Bonnell, you will find a large open area with a great view where you can see houses next to the river, large hills in the distance and the whole city. The highest natural point in Austin, Texas, it stands 775 feet tall—less a mountain and more a really really tall hill.
