The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Beautiful park but lots of construction
Sep 2021
It's a beautiful park but there was so much construction that we did not have a chance to enjoy beautiful Montreal views. Still, definitely worth a visit.

walk or bus.
Sep 2021
I took bus #11. However, Google maps gave me the wrong place to catch this bus. There are lot of trails to explore. This place is a MUST at night time to see the city from above. I suggest that the visitor walk up as there are stairs to facilitate your access to this stunning part of Montreal.

Probably a little too hyped
Aug 2021
Not sure how would it have looked at night. We went on a hot summer day and was not tooo impressed. The road repairing frenzy in Montreal was also to blame for our irritation.

Views, Fresh Air, Nature and Montreal from the Top
Sep 2020
When you are in Montreal, please do not miss this place. I was there during the Fall in 2019. Weather was good. Nothing is more peaceful than being surrounded by nature, beautiful landscape of trees and tranquility. Hike to the top of the mountain. It is not challenging to reach the top. There are well-maintained staircases and pathways throughout the area. You can also use the GPS to guide you to reach to the top or ask around which I did most of the time. Apparently, there are several spots for photography at different peaks.

I went there alone and it feels safe since there are a lot of joggers, hikers and tourists especially at the summit. The view of the city from the peak is stunning. I ended up spending more time there than planned, plus minus about two hours. I cannot stop myself from enjoying the beauty. The charm of the greens which are turning into tints of Autumn made me fall in love with this place.

Best views in Montreal
Apr 2021
I guess this is the ''must see'' attraction for anyone visiting Montreal. The views are great and the get away from the city is nice. Cycle all the way up or take one of the many hiking trails on the mountain. Avoid sunny Saturdays when there are more people than trees on the mountain!

Excellent place for a little hike.
Jul 2020
Mont-Royal is a fun place to hike and the summit offers tremendous scenery. There is no admission fee and are many entrances scattered throughout a part of the city.

Nice walk
Feb 2021 • Friends
A nice park in the middle of the city. Good for an easy walk. I would recommending parking on the street and not driving in. Everyone was double parked and all over the place.
