My Fiancee and I hiked up the mountain on a very hot day. On the way up we took the winding path for half of it, and finished with the stairs. The stairs were a good challenge and fun! Once at the top, the view was spectacular; well worth the effort! We spent a good 20 minuets just taking it... More

It is an amazing view from the top of the hill, however the amount is stairs you have to climb are not for the faint hearted, especially in the summer. Make sure you take water, as buying anything up top will be expensive, and pace yourself.

We took out scooter up to Mont Royal viewpoint which was a nice visit for about 20 mins. It's obviously longer if you hike up, and there is a higher viewpoint walking. It's nice when you have experienced montreal first, then go to the viewpoint to see where you've been. Lots of people there. Don't feed the racoon family rummaging... More

This is a lovely park with plenty of places to walk and cycle. We walked and climbed up steps to the Mount Royal Chalet and viewing area for panaromic views of the city of Montreal. There are toilets, an information booth and tables and chairs to picnic at inside. Plus a small souvenir shop and carts selling cold drinks. A... More

This is definitely where locals hike, run, and enjoy their weekend. We visited on a Sunday morning and it was perfect for that time of day.

you can drive to a car park at the top- but why not ride or walk. It is well worth the effort with great views of the city.

I have been visiting Mount Royal since I was a child. My Canadian family has picnics in the park. At the top, there is a large building where we attended a free concert. Bring binoculars and your camera.

Beautiful trails, fun and varied crowd. Convenient access to near top and simple trails to reach the landmarks - the cross and maison ... Very nice chill way to bid au revoir to Montreal from Mont Royal!

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.
