The Lachine Canal runs 14.5 km from the Old Port until Lake St. Louis in the west. The city has made it nicer and more accessible for bikers. The bike path runs from the Old Port all the way until the west which makes it...More

This bike path takes you to all main attractions or Montreal. I’ve crossed the bridge,visited Old Port,went to Quartier des Spectacles etc. This Canal is very close to one of the best Markets of the city,Atwater. I recommend.

The Lachine Canal is a great way to spend a couple of hours walking - it has dedicated bike and pedestrian lanes all the way from Old Montreal to St Ambroise.

We stopped in right next to the heart of the canal right next to Atwater Market. We didn't have time to walk the whole length, but those stopping into Atwater should definitely make the slight detour here to have a look at this historic place.

Fun bike path with minimal hills riding along the canal and to return you can bike through a series of connected parks on the east side of the island. Wonderful park on the peninsula extending into Lac St Louis

The good part is that the bike path is fantastically well designed, you hardly ever need to cross any streets let alone ride through traffic. This fact is well used by roadies, in fact we've been passed by a three-rider paceline in matching kit, which...More

I see that some of the reviews are negative; don't listen to them. No, this is not a ride through the countryside. But it varies from cityscapes to beautiful tree-lined sections. It has interesting history and a good surface for riding. And it ends at...More

On vacation in Montréal, I was eager to do a ten-mile run starting from downtown, heading up the Canal-de-Lachine and then back down to waterfront in Vieux-Montréal. The canal takes the runner or cyclist through a varied landscape of old warehouses, graffiti-covered unused buildings, luxury...More

Generally people rent for 1-2 hours. The canal has locks and H2O is located between #3 and #4 which is 3 km. If you want to pic nic go for 2-3 hours
