Day hike

It's good for a hike, run or a normal walk during any time of the day. This is the view in the morning but nothing beats the nighttime skyline !

On a clear day you can see the northern USA states. Excellent views of the city and St Lawrence river. Great park and a wonderful setting.

You can hike or see the view form the car. There is plenty or parking spots. Make sure to bring water and snacks, specially during the summer.

It is not a hard mountain to climb, mostly there are steps. There is a good lookout not too far up where you can see the city. A rest area is there, for a breather. It has picnic tables, paths. It is not a very high mountain, but it is not hard to reach and at best its a moderate... More

Based on the advice of others, we took an Uber to the top and walked down. You can easily walk up if you can take the steep steps. We did not because we were planning on walking all day long. Great views from the top! And if you visit in May, the tulips are out! The hike to the cross... More

A great hike in the middle of the city. We took our time, because we had a three year old and an energetic 9 year old with us. It was a lovely, but long hike to the top. Beautiful greenery all around and getting to the top was worth it. Great views of downtown Montreal. Make sure you have a... More

I was staying in Rue de Montaigne so it would have been poor not to visit here. It was a short (but uphill) walk from my hotel to the start of the park. Then the climb got steeper. You can take the gentle route which meanders back and forth but it's "only" 250 steps to the top (with plenty of... More

You can park not too far from the main lookout point, which does give you amazing views of the city towards the St. Lawrence river. It was a beautiful sunny day and a busy spot, but not too crowded. Lots of space to stand around, sit around, and lookout. Some of our group then walked up further to the very... 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.
