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.

How to Get There

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.

Best First Time

I'm a very lazy person and when I find out my school trip would be going up a mountain let just say I was not so happy. When I got to the top it was very refreshing and a nice run up. After that I been very athlete. A very good morning jog!
