I read a bunch of reviews about the "easy" climb. Look, if you take the long way to the top, it's easy. BUT if you take the steps, it's taxing, but quick to get up to the top. The view it totally worth it. Just...More

Take your time in hiking, because your energy will be depleted easily. But once you reached the top, it is a nice view. Just follow the trail and bring a water bottle.

A must see destination, especially beautiful in the fall with the trees turning colors. Walk up for good exercise or take a cab up and walk down. Not difficult at all and great for people young and old.

I highly recommend hiking the Mont Royal for a romantic afternoon. The hike is not for beginners but great for families. The view from the Belvedere is breathtaking :)

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
