Description

An internationally known public space with extraordinary views from its lookouts. The park opened in 1876 and is believed to be the first officially protected space in Quebec. At least 4 million people visit Mont Royal each year. The park is the only Canadian commons designed by American architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park in New York City. There are many interconnected trails that run off of Chemin Olmsted and can be connected and made into longer and shorter loops with different landmarks and lookouts along each path.

Anyone who ever sets foot on the island must check out Mont-Royal! An integral part of visiting Quebec. A beautiful path with a view the entire time and reward like no other.

Not an easy run! #2 inner loop not going to the cross. Lots of climbing and steep hills down

Great trail with lots of side trails at the Mount Royal in Montreal. I continued recording later in the day while walking through city, so here you have if all. Great city, by the way.

Easy hike, even for my young child. We went off the main path many times to walk through the woods. Went to the summit, then to the cross, then to the chalet & lookout for beautiful views!

Much harder than "Easy". Several flights of stairs are required but it's fully shaded, which is a plus. Outstanding views at the top. Well worth the adventure!

The views of Montreal are incredible from the lookout and make it worth the trek alone. If you wander past the lookout, you will be rewarded with many miles of beautiful trails, ranging from large roads to small sandy foot trails. This is the best view of a city I’ve ever seen from the ground and definitely should be part of any trip to this historic town.
