I went there during the winter, so only may access by car, but the view is amazing. I already went to there during the summer and is a completely different place. Good in both seasons.

Cimbing the stairs to the top is not for the timid as it can be quite taxing. There is also the gentler winding paths to the top but regardless, once reaching the top, the views of Montreal are spectacular and the peaceful surroundings makes you forget your in a major metropolis.

Beautiful view of the cityscape. Easy access by bus. Loved that you can walk via stairs/path. Forgot to check out the cross until I saw it at the bottom whilst catching the Park Ave bus to St. Vialeur bagels. Next time would like to climb Montreal's mountain at night when the cross is lit up. Bonus is that McGill university... More

We had a cab take us up to the drop off point near the main lookout. A short walk through the treed area and you're overlooking all of downtown Montreal. It was quite cold the day we went (-10) and we were unprepared but still made the best of it. If you're adventurous - take the stairs down from the... More

If you're ambitious, this would be a great hike from downtown Montreal, but even by car, the view is gorgeous on a nice day (I was there in the fall and this was one of my Montreal Highlights). If the air is clear, you can see all the way to the Green Mountains in Vermont

The Parc du Mont-Royal is a very nice parc on top of Mont-Royal in the middle of Montreal city. The paths are wide and well maintained. They will lead you to the Chalet du Mont-Royal where you will have a breathtaking view of the city and the St-Lawrence River. Beware if you are a dog hater. This may not be... More

Every season I venture up to Mount Royal during my lunch hours and even on the weekends. It's beautiful and clean all year round. You can buy food and admire the city from the top. There is even a event room you can reserve for meetings and special events.

Took theEast entrance near the college and it took about 1hour and a half easy walking, lovely ascending views and seeing people cross country skiing, at the top theres an ice rink and tubing (winter only) and buildings with washrooms. View itself is impressive and clear, wouldn't call it pretty but vast, and you see all the mountains and bridges

We were in Montreal December, and it was about 10 degrees Fahrenheit when we visited Mont Royal, but we enjoyed it anyway. The hike to the top was not difficult, but there were a lot of stairs. At the top, there is a chalet and there are a couple of visitors' centers. The view of the city was excellent from... More

Mont Royal Park is wonderful all year round. You can walk, jog, cycle or cross-country ski on the mountain/park. You can stroll along a gravel path that takes you to the top where you have a splendid view of the city. It's great for a picnic and cool on a hot summer day. People love to walk around Lac des...
