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.

The climb was well worth the vista and cross we saw at the top of Mount Royal. It's breathtaking and you are able to see the entire city

Lots of stairs to go up, so I recommend doing what my wife and I did. Take a cab or Uber up to the top (ask them to take you to Maison Smith), and then walk DOWN through the park admiring the views and nature....More

If you are like me and enjoy a bit of a challenge, you can climb the stairs to the top and enjoy a coffee when you get there. Alternatively, take a cab and walk down. It was a nice walk back down through the University...More

Wear hiking shoes and be ready to climb a LOT of steps. Really pretty and relaxing on a cool day. View from the belvedere was breezy and fun until the tourist buses showed up.

Mont Royal is a must see when you visit Montreal. The views of the city and the vistas outside of the city are fabulous. The main hall has an excellent display of the history of Montreal and the beginnings of Canada. It was an easy...More

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
