Want a bit of a workout without going too far, and at the same time get one of the best tourist experiences of Montreal? Within 2km this Montreal Mount Royal Top tour run will take you to the top of beautiful Mont-Royal Park with stunning panoramic views from the Mount Royal Chalet lookout with the Kondiaronk Belvedere, named after a native Huron chief. You can see the whole city, the St. Lawrence River, and the distant Monteregie hills on the horizon.
This is a photo opportunity not to be missed! The average incline to get up is about 12% but once at the top, all the work is done. After that we can cruise through the park trails and enjoy a more gradual descent back, picking the leafy (or snowy) trails, with breathtaking colors in autumn. If you like we can stop and say hi to some park residents. Grey squirrels are very common.
