“Nice spot in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

The hike to the summit is really nice and healthy (lots of stairs), just be sure to get a good pair of shoes, specially during winter when the last part of the trail gets icy. The summit is really beautiful and perfect to take pics of the city, also you can bring some snacks or food to drink while you rest inside the chalet that is right there! It is perfect when you want to get warm and they even have a piano where you can play some music or listen to someone else but it depends on which musician is traveling with you ;)

“Nice View of Montreal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Pretty drive up the hill through a nice park to the top. From the top of the mountain/hill, you get a beautiful view of much of Montreal. There is a small place to get food there and bathrooms. On the weekends, there is a lot of activity in the park. A thousand people partying in the park. Lots of international handicrafts for sale and a very cool atmosphere.

“Quick Climb for a great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Didn't plan on going up this mini mountain but have no regrets at the beautiful view from the top! There is also a wonderful cafe on the mountain and some mini souvenir shops.

“what a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

You see everything from here it is a beautiful way to see the entire city. I am sure in the summer the views would be even more spectacular. Worth the trip up the Mountain.

There are raccoons on the mountain that come and say hello... really cute. Also, there is a great view of the city. Nice place.
