Hike Mont Royal

Parc Du Mont Royal - Search Nearby - Added by Kira McDermid

This is an amazing walk up to the top of Mount Royal, allowing a view of the city of Montreal below.

Starting at McGill University's campus, you will hike uphill, stopping at multiple lookouts along the way. There are multiple ways you can hike up to the top of the mountain: paved road, stairs or dirt foot paths. Biking up the paved roadway is also possible. Three quarters of the way up is a beautiful chalet with the most stunning view of Montreal, as well as amenities including washrooms and a gift shop.

Best view of Montreal

Hike to Mont-Royal's Belvedere to access the best view of the city. A large trail system let people enjoy the mountain all-year-round. There is an ice rink on top of the mountain during Winter, and people used to slide down riding Crazy Carpet. Hiking Mont-Royal is a must for outdoorsy people visiting Montreal.

Good afternoon walk

Great little part of Montréal, if you're in the city and have some free time you should definitely do some exploring on the mountain. Don't just stick to the paved viewpoint, go check out the other trails and views all around. Not wild by any means, the hum of the city is always present; but a good bit of nature that is easily accessible.

Touch of nature in the city !

Being from Montreal I could say that this stop is unavoidable on a trip to Montreal. The panoramic view on the city is amazing, espacially at sunset and the hike to go there is quite easy. Could be really crowdy on sunny days and during the weekends, but its worth it. It is also a perfect spot for a picnic and a good way to start exploring Mount-Royal.
