Hiking up here in the Fall is wonderful with great views over the city and the colours of Autumn. We went up the escaliers and some rougher paths on the way up and then down on the gravel/paved chemin down, as our friend was in an air boot for a broken foot. You can make is as rough or easy...

Like the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Empire State Building in NYC, Mount Royal (Mont Royal - pronounced mawn-row-yal in French) acts as a natural landmark and way to orient yourself in Montreal. The year-round public park also rewards those who make their way to the summit with a wonderful view of the city. The Mont Royal summit has... More

Beautiful park with a great view by the chalet. My wife and I (unfortunately) took the wrong way to get there - and walked through the very nice cemetery. As with a couple of other reviews, the best advice is to take the metro, and then the #11 bus.

I was underwhelmed, perhaps I didn't give it enough of a chance. Came through on a tour making several stops and didn't feel the need to come back - sorry.

I loved the view here. We walked through McGill University and happened upon the park. We actually had to sneak up some steps because they closed off the stairs for repairs but when we go to the observation deck at the top there were a lot of people hanging out. The views were amazing and the best pictures took were... More

We took bus 11 to the chateau on the top. We walked alo lot to get to the other lookout point- not necessary. When we were at the chateau we saw people brought lunch with them. This is a nice thing to do.

I loved the journey to the peak of Mont Royal. You can take the wandering gently sloping path (walk or bike) or you can be a little adventurous and climb some steep/rocky paths straight up! Once you get most of the way up you can continue the paths or take some stairs right up as well. 250 to be precise... More

Took the bus #11 from the metro station. Short walk to the Chalet Mont Royal. Views are amazing! Would not recommend going to see the croix unless you have time as there's nothing really to see.

Great reliving a childhood memory where I learned to ski, found my orientation to where my cousins live, saw various exercise classes in the park, and enjoyed the view!

Staying in Parc du Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
