I wouldn't suggest that to tourists. We did it on our way down from the chalet but we probably shouldn't have. It is an ok walk and view, surrounded by million (s) dollars houses. Nice for a Sunday walk with the dog...

Nice little hike to summit. Very enjoyable for families with small children. Beautiful views and history with the lodge at summit welcoming to guests. The snack bar about 1/4 mile down from summit serves great ham and Brie paninis. Important! Wear shoes comfortable for walking as you'll walk a mile no matter what you do up there. There are multiple... More

I didn't realize there was an alternative to Mont Royal park for scenic views of Montreal. Summit Park offers a wonderful, peaceful option. There's ample street parking next to the lookout and it seems to be one of Montreal's best kept secrets. Nobody was around. On a clear day you can see for miles, clear across the St Lawrence River.... More

Looking for an escape from the fray of the city? At the top of Mount Royal, a park area that borders one of the most prestigious residential areas in Montreal, Summit Woods offers a stunning view of the Island and is not clogged with tourists. The backdrop is Saint-Joseph's oratory, with École Sainte-Marcelline, a private school for girls just adjacent.

Better view of Montreal than the Mont-Royal look-out. You get to see more of the buildings. Also, there's less people.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
