Great climb; a little slick underfoot, but what else would one expect in February? Great view of the city!

This is SO worth the hike up----we did not use all the stairs on the way up...w.e used the road which had a bit of snow and made us work....but the view was well worth it!

Really nice park to walk around- was there in winter and the pathways were very icy and slippery but the stairs up and down were clear. The views from the top are amazing well worth the walk up- although in winter the viewing platform is basically an ice rink and very very very slippery. Go see it!

The panorama from this location is stunning to say the least. Parking is somewhat far away and you have to walk on a footpath that is not cleaned (completely iced up). But it was worth the hassle.

St Joseph's Oratory on Mt Royal. We definitely went out of our way to get there and it was definitely worth it. The story of Father Andre performing miraculous healing at this site and the beauty of the cathedral (Oratory) was awe inspiring and a journey of the soul. Amazing! After visiting St Joseph's Oratory we made our why to... More

Amazing for a hike or just a leisure stroll. Beaver lake is nice both in the winter or summer and the view from the 'Chalet' of the city skyline below is amazing, both day and night.

We loved walking the area although very difficult with the snow covered walk ways. Not good for those needing assistance! We did see a number of locals jogging, mostly up and down the stairs! Great workout? Cold for sure? Probably glorious in Spring!

Special views on backside for sunset & front side to see all of Montreal. Beware that starting at 5:00pm the traffic intensifies as people try to capture the sunset. Awesome view. Explore the graveyard if you have time. Hike away.

We had a lovely walk up from the parking lot - fun to see people out enjoying the beautiful weather! The views really are quite incredible from the top! Please note - from the parking lot up to the Chateux, there are some icy sections - but mostly at the top - there is no sand/salt down, and it is... More

Staying in Parc du Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
