If you want a great bird's eye view of the city, then you need to visit Mont Royal. There are 3 entrances with pathways up the hill, with the Peel St entrance the most popular. The road winds like a serpent up to the top and can take 45 minutes or the more mobile inclined can climb the many staircases that cut across the road and get to the look out in about 15 minutes. The last 100 stairs are a bit steep. There is also a city bus that you can catch to take you to the top. Best to go on a sunny day as fog can roll in on a more overcast day and cloud your view.

Again, I went into this thinking it would just be a regular, pleasant park. I kept reading about how this park was designed by Olmstead, who designed Central Park in NYC, so I thought it would be a good place for a leisurely stroll. I did not expect to take a hike! We took one of the public buses up the hill (or le mont, I suppose), and from there we walked -- hiked, really. I was not expecting it to be more of a Los Angeles-type of a park experience. We couldn't figure out where the trail was leading us, so we just ended up turning back the way we came. Lots of folks were jogging and walking their dogs. Overall, it's a beautiful, beautiful place, but please keep in mind -- it is a MOUNTAIN and you need to plan accordingly. It's not someplace to just stroll into for a few minutes -- Jardin des Tuilereis in Paris or whatever. It's a commitment.

It is around 2km from the downtown Montreal and 20-25mins hike from the base parking lot. Must visit for experiencing cool breeze and in every season as in every season, the hill has something new to portray

Generally accessed by automobile or bicycle but has regular city bus services..
This park was designed by Olmstead who also did Central Park in Manhattan.
We prefer to visit in nice summer weather, weekends can be crowded, however a sunny winter day is also great opportunity to get some fresh air for the lungs after spending cold snowy winter days trapped inside dry overheated homes..
For the cross-country skiers trapped in Montreal for the winter, there are a multitude of trails that are well used by locals, even on weekdays after work. the no-vehicle roads are a treat to walk any time of year and are well populated by Montreal's hard core joggers groups. It is a joggers paradise for a city resident!
