Something everyone should do when visiting Montreal. A great view of the city. Easy to find your way up to the top. Whenever we visit Montreal we try to go to the top.

Great place to do some workout or just to hang out. From the top you have a nice view of downtown. You could walk up a flight of stairs from downtown but I prefer taking Bus #11 from Metro Mont-Royal. One of Montreal's must see attractions.

This was undoubtedly the best bit of Montreal for me and had oodles of character as it was covered in snow. Take a bus to Saint Joseph's oratory, then walk round the outskirts of the cemetery on the Rue des Pins ( stopping off at the German grocery store on the right for supplies of chocolate ) and in about...

We took Bus route 11 up to the top, then spent a few hours walking the trails and taking in the views. It felt awesome to be in such a country like environment and yet in the centre of Canada's second largest city. The walk down into the city passed through the McGill campus. A great way to spend a...

This is one of those places you just end up in Montreal. Such a great area. Excellent trails leading up to the top and great views from the observatory.

I went in the Snow to Mont Royal. It was freezing and I didn't have the greatest outdoor gear on however, the trek up the mountain and walking around was great to see how the locals make the most of the weather. We could see snow ball fights, sledging, joggers and many others. The view from the top is amazing... More

Nice view, but far for walking, make sure you find the right bus route there or drive your car so you can really enjoy the view. Though we did not find any cafe' there to sit, chill and enjoy the view.

Mont Royal was a really cool place in the middle of the city. Tons of stairs to hike up (you'll work off those crepes) and paths winding around wooded and lawn-y areas. At the top, there are amazing views of all sides of Montreal. You can walk around in here for quite a long time without retracing your steps. Great... More
