Beautiful trail run this morning. I think everyone besides me had a dog. Many different trail options and mostly flat. Few roots to deal with but not a technically challenging walk.

I have been volunteering here for more than 15 years. It is a place where nature is just allowed to be nature as much as possible. If you are not a member you are able to go and enjoy the space for a reasonable fee per person.

What I love about this place is that you have your nature, the birds and trees etc. But you can picnic and enjoy a couple of hours not to far from home. So if you are a beginner or advanced hiker, this location is perfect to do your hiking walks. Enjoy !.

if you like to walk for long, enjoy the nature, this is a nice place to be. In the winter you may go for cross-country skiing.

Maybe we visited at wrong season (first week of October). We walked around the arboretum, just found it too boring. We saw the lantern festival, but it will cost another $15 on top of $20, so we just walk out. Wasted time and money.

I don’t understand why people call this a hike: you’re simply walking on a flat surface trail for 30 minutes. There is simply no challenge to be had and it’s only popular due to its location being on the island of Montreal.

The most beautiful trails are only open during the winter, so forget having any kind of challenge during the summer months. Bugs can be excruciating during the warmer months, so the walking isn’t worth it; it is extremely rare to see deer: best you will ever see are a few birds in the trees. Even then, the beautiful trails are mostly flat in the winter, so again you aren’t having a great experience in the first place.

If you want to have a real hike, I suggest you guys look at Mont Saint Hillaire: it’s a hike only 1 hour away from Montreal, and it offers steep cliffs that offer an engaging and fascinating hiking experience- the view from the top of the mountain is spectacular and makes you feel rewarded after a long hike. Both le Mont Saint Hillaire and the Arboretum are owned by McGill University, yet le Mont Saint Hillaire is more worth your while.

Don’t go to the Morgan Arboretum when you can go hiking somewhere else.

Every year this small community outside Montreal has a day with free activities. It was my first visit to Morgan but it won’t be our last. They had an activity inside to make a bird feeder. Smartly using soy and sunflower butter instead of peanut butter. Then they released Monarchs were the kids could as well. We didn’t even get a chance to go on the trails we will next time.

Are you looking for some peace? A place to decompress? Take a deep deep green forest bathe in the Morgan Arboretum. What I mean by a Forest Bath is ... let the forest wash away your stress. Its a quiet place. The paths are well marked and the flora well indicated ... it is a forest managed by the McGill University Agricultural campus located in Ste Anne de Bellevue ... Warning!!! In the early spring its not so peaceful ... there are a lot of mosquitoes that are voraciously hungry ... but by June its wonderful.
