Well worth the many steps to get to the top, you won't be disappointed at the panoramic view. There is plenty of parking nearby if driving.

Everyone we talked to before going to Montreal recommended Mount Royal. From our downtown hotel getting there involved a subway (Metro) and a bus, followed by a fairly long trek up a driveway. It was worth it. When I rounded the corner and saw the vista in front of me I was, as they like to say in Great Britain,... More

Easily accessible on foot or by tour bus. Stunning views of Montreal. The entire area surrounding Mount Royal is worth seeing.

It is easy to get here by using public transportation. You can just google it. It takes about less than 10 minutes to walk up the hill to see the view that is just breathless. You can see half of Montreal from this point. If you want to see the other half come visit St. Joseph's Oratory. You can also... More

This was a beautiful surprise in the middle of the city. It's a tiny mountain you can hike up and see the entire city of Montreal. The trails are clearly marked, but there are few maps to know which option you might want to choose. I recommend looking at/printing a map online before going if you want to make the... More

this hike up the stairs doesn't take too long probably 20 mins of strenuous stair work, the reward is a view of montreal that is very nice and panoramic, the chalet at the top has wifi for uploading your instagrams and a bathroom as well

It had a nice view of the City, but a little crowded since it's tourist season. I say only need to go once and not really a second time if you have the time to go. It's not a must do for me personally as there's really nothing else to do.

Mount Royal Park is best known for housing the St-Joseph Oratory, a beautiful Catholic Church; that is well known. What is less known is the park located just a mere km away from the Shrine. The park has been designed by the same architec that designed Central Park in NYC. a nice walk in summer or winter and it takes... More

You can break the steps but using the winding paths, but the end provides great views over Montreal. There are trails through the park and the bush and it so relaxing and peaceful. So off the main tracks if you want to avoid the huge number of runners. Enjoyed it!

And walks with the best view of the city once you reach the top! We combined this with visiting St Joseph's Oratory and that made a lovely day.
