This is a must-do Austin activity where you can get a real sense of the beautiful and unique natural surroundings of the city. Head out to the famous 360 Bridge Overlook and hike alongside Lake Austin to enjoy breathtaking scenery!

Your adventure includes a .5 mile out-and-back trail that features a river and is good for all skill levels. Be sure not to get too close to the edges as there are some major drop-offs. Dogs are welcome!

Pro tip: Early morning and sunset make for the prettiest views.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
