you ascend where Rue Peel hits McGill University. Beautiful park, awful lot of steep steps to get you to the top but the panoramic view in all directions is pretty fantastic.

Easy drive (harder walk) from anywhere in Montreal. Great vistas of the city with plentiful parking at various points through the park. A nice filler activity, but not a must do.

Being a new resident of Montreal, I'm easily able to enjoy this beautiful park on a daily basis. The main pathway and random cut-through paths that head up the mountain are well maintained and a joy to wonder. You can take the long and winding road, or cut off via different stairs or paths from assorted roadways at the base... More

It was a long walk up to the top of Mont Royal, but it is a pretty hike along a wooded path. If you are in pretty good shape it is a nice thing to do.

This was a great setting with families taking advantage of picnics. The hikes were of an easy nature plus bikes were available for hire. Well worth going for a few hours of relaxation. Cafe on site with good selection of food and drinks.

A short Metro ride followed by a short bus ride, and you arrive at Mont Royal. Your other option, as I understand it, is to climb 200 stairs. We saved our energy for a walk around the park. Lovely get-away in the middle of the city.

Definitely worth the short hike to the top. The hike up is a beautiful forest path that's moderately easy. When you get to the top, the view of the city is absolutely gorgeous! There are also clean bathrooms and a water fountain at the top. Definitely worth a quick 1-2 hour walk-around on a nice afternoon.

After a steep climb up many wooden stairs, you do reach a nice viewing balcony with an old chateaux that gives you a panoramic view of Montreal. The climb itself is boring and arduous. Beyond the chateaux area, there is very little to see of interest. Despite the fact that the park was created by the same person who designed... More
