Such a great decision to spend Sunday afternoon in Mount Royal Park. When you arrived at the lake, you feel as if it is a version of Central Park (New York City). Then as you decend up the paths, enjoying the nature, you reach the...More

Below the official Mount Royal Park area are lots of hiking and biking trails worth spending a few hours traversing, by foot or bike. You'll reach the staircase to the top, and there are many, but it's worth it. Once you get to the top...More

A beautiful drive into this park, but watch out for cyclists! The parking lot was non-invasive, yet handy. At the primary overlook, a well designed area allowed for multiple views and accommodated several hundred people. The trails were also thumbs up. 👍

Everytime I come to Montreal, I make sure to go here. There are so many places to explore and great view from the top. It is also very dog friendly.

High up,with gorgeous views on a clear view. Best wear comfortable footwear as this park can be a very long walk indeed, depending on the route one choses to take. Trees and squirrels galore. Many steps to climb, so be fit or pace yourself.

A good place to hike. Can get easily lost in the numerous small walking trails in the woods. Nice experience overall. Great view of Montreal.

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

The homepage says due to new traffic regulations cars should park either at Smith House (coming from the East) or at Beaver Lake (coming from the West). This lasts until October.
