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
You can drive and park, catch a bus or hike up the hill to Mount Royal. It’s a lovely walk, but there are a lot of stairs.
At the top is large park land complete with picnicers. There’s also the Chateau which has a small...More
Had a nice walk all the way to the top of the mountain, where you get a great panoramic view of the city. If you go during wintertime, make sure you wear appropriate clothing and shoes, cause the stairway can be very slippery when wet.
Confusing but fun park! My boyfriend and I got veryyy lost trekking around, but there are so many trails (mini and long) that connect to each other so it's easy to re-route if necessary. We eventually made it to the top lookout point which was...More
MY husband and I stopped here on our way out of town while on a brief visit this summer and were really glad we didn't skip it. The wonderful plaza at the lookout point was great and we enjoyed the charming lodge building there as...More
It is long walk up a lot of stairs with some steep walking in pea gravel pathway, but worth it. It took us about an hour of slow but steady walking.
About half way up, there is the possibility of talking a roundabout route that...More
A beautiful walk, near 311 steps if you take the shortest walk! Definitely felt it in my legs the next day! A nice break to a relaxing vacation, nice to do something active! The leaves were fantastic at this time of year; a bit muddy...More
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.
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.
