Mount Bonnell, a municipal park located on the western edge of the city above Town Lake, is one of the highest points in the area at 775 feet, making it a popular spot for surveying the surrounding area. From here, visitors can see downtown to the southeas and the sunset over the Texas Hill Country and Lake Travis to the west. It has been a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark since 1969. The trail leading to the summit is short but steep and includes many stairs.
