A stunning vantage point of Montreal. A nice hike up to the site as well. Do pay for parking at the site. Montreal is hurting for revenue and will ding you at all opportunities!

We walked up the stairs from the city to the top of Mont Royal--suburb view of the city, and a great work out! Lots of people, music and fun atmosphere!

We only went there in the day time, but I must say night view probably will be just stunning. There are wildlife abound on Mont Royal. We saw a racoon rummaging through a dust been. It was just fantastic! We also spotted a few Squirrels.

The Mont Royal is the perfect place to run and walk. When you arrive at the top, the view of Montreal is very pretty. Great particulary in fall (for the colors), winter (for the snow activities) and summer (for the weather and the water activities).

It is fun running up the hill to the chalet, then running to the Mt royal cross, and taking the small path down to belvedere parking lot. The stairs behind the parking lot on the right finally lead the the broad path that one has to take to get up the hill. Alternatively, take the trail from chalet to belvedere.... More

A hike up Mont Royal was a great way to start our short visit to Montreal. About 450 steps plus lots of uphill make it a pretty good workout on the way up. The views are fine and it was fun starting the hike on the McGill campus. It was a hot day in July and I'm glad we got... More

Staying in Parc du Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
