Fabulous views of downtown, including a portrait of Leonard Cohen on a building's façade. There is often some live entertainment at the top of the mountain -- or at the very least, some great people-watching opportunities!

It was an arduous climb with steps galore (this almost sounds like an understatement) but the panoramic vista of Montreal offered by the vantage point at the top justified the physical exertion. We went in autumn, possibly the best season as the fall foliage was...More

Plan at least 4 hours if you decide to walk from the bottom. A beautiful walk that ends on the béveldère where you can have a view of downtown Montreal and the south shore. You can take a break on the edge of the lake!...More

Hiking was easy; short trails aren't that challenging. Beautiful views from behind the information center. You need to carefully read the bus map and pickup points as the printed map we used did not show the correct location of the bus stop.

For the best view of Montreal, you must head to the top of Mount Royal! You’ll have a view of the skylines like nothing else. A large beautiful park that could take days to explore. The scenery is great and as is the public art....More

We walked across the park east to west and truly enjoyed the roads without cars (the roads were snow-covered so it was too slippery for vehicles). A long walk that I can only imagine is spectacular in all seasons. People were ice skating on the...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

Autumn would probably be special because if the changing colors of the leaves. I was there too early in September to witness it. Still a pretty place.
