“A verdant oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Okay...so one of my friends called our trek through Mont Royal the "death march"...but that's because she's getting over knee surgery! The park has well marked & maintained trails so even my recovering friend was able to take in the splendour easily (if not silently!).

“Hike to the top!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Mount Royal with River and city views. Steep and beautiful walk, just in the middle of the city. Pavilion on the way for coffee.

“Full of squirrels and good exercise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I walked up and down the "mountain" on a very late autumn day - not many leaves left on the trees, but the place was alive with squirrels - which may have been red ones. Some steep paths, but also an easy way up for cyclists and joggers, if you choose.

“Wonderful Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Great walk or bike up, great views of the city, fresh air, what more would you want? Grab a picnic basket, some beer, enjoy tamtams on Sundays, or slide down on cold winter days.

“Only place to mountain bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Even though this is the only "mountain" in the vicinity, it sufficed for mountain biking. There are some trails through the trees, but watch out for the leaves during autumn as it makes it a little difficult biking up and down as you can't get good grip.
