Mount Bonnell

780 ft above sea level rises Mount Bonnell, the highest point in Austin.

From Downtown take Loop-1 and turn into W 35th Street. Then take Mount Bonnell Rd.
Mount Bonnell is located west of Austin and you will enjoy a great view over Lake Austin, the Colorado River, and the city.

Mount Bonnell was named after George W. Bonnell who was a journalist and soldier in the 19th century. He published in 1840 the first Austin Texas Sentinel.
