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.
Google Maps said it would take approximately 60 minutes to walk from where we were. What we didn’t know at the time, was that it was primarily all up hill – a very steep hill to be more specific. And once we reached the top...More
The gradual uphill climb was easily managed on a wide forested path and one is rewarded with a striking view of Montreal at the top. The Leonard Cohen wall mural pops out from the city landscape. The Chalet has some historic features and provided a...More
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
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
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.
