Long walk up the Mont Royal on a snowy day. But it's lovely to see. Quick way to pass time on a slow or relaxed day. I walked in the snow and I was extremely warm by the time I arrived at the top. It's definitely worth the trip!

This is now my favorite park ever. Raw beauty. Make a path or follow the 3 already paved ones. If you are a nature lover you will absolutely love walking through this park!

I had some time during a recent trip so I took the time to hike up Mont Royal. I'm so glad I did. The scenic overlook at the top made the trip completely worthwhile. Beautiful view of Montreal and surrounding area. If you have the time, I highly recommend it. Be warned, if you move off the main path that... More

Very pleasant / pretty area. Nice scenic over view from the top. At least drive through it unless you are into hiking, at which point you would also enjoy what would be probably be an easy hike!

Mount Royal is a must when visiting Montreal; walk up the gorgeous path in good weather (you'll be in the happy company of countless strollers of all ages), or drive up, park and take the short walk to the exquisite building and terrace at the top. Be sure to catch the hand-painted murals and stunning ceiling inside! The terrace is... More

We visited the Mount Royal in the autumn. The place was amazing, with all different colors from green to red. Awesome views of the city skyline.

A must to see Montreal downtown and the old port. Nice belvedere. Go visit at any time, any season. In 2017-18, the city will manage a beautiful promenade for pedestrians between the mountain and old Montreal (port).

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.
