The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Last time I was at Mont-Royal was in March 2008. It was quite the climb to get here from my hotel on Rene-Levesque Boulevard, as I walked up McTavish Street to Pine Avenue, which was a 30-minute walk going uphill. Great to see the view of the city during the summer time, a lot busier than the last time I was here.

Suggest an UBER or taxi from Old Montreal, really nice relaxing day walking the paths. The view of the City was beautiful.

This is a great park to walk around in and there are good views of the city. It was a step climb up a lot of steps to get here but it was worth it. I enjoyed walking around in the park.

Mount Royal Park is a world-class gem. The walking trails are beautiful, and the view from the chateau at the top is the crowning glory.

I'll start by saying that I love walking whenever I visit a new city, so I'm not a lazy traveler but I just don't know that this is a must see for visitors to Montreal? I think that if you live here, there are a lot of places to just chill out and relax on a nice day but I think for tourists it's a little bit of a waste. If you do go, maybe take a blanket and a picnic to get the full enjoyment rather than just walking around and taking an okay photo.

Going up and down the steps is the fastest way to reach the top. A little challenging! Hike the switchbacks- lon her but more leisurely.

It was a nice climb up, so we got in some good exercise. It is not a difficult climb, but it can be a lot for someone with a bad knee or if they use a cane. The hike took about 30-40 minutes up the hill and then you have several flight of steps, but the views was well worth the climb.

Although I didn’t reach the lookout on Mount Royal I did enjoy my hike along the wide forested paths that lead up to the lookout. I made it as far as the lake and it was a nice sight as it is located in a wide open space perfect for relaxing or a picnic.

Very scenic and nice at the top. Climb (especially if you start from the nearest subway station) is pretty strenuous - but certainly doable even for adults in reasonable shape.
