Fodor's Review

No trip to Montréal is complete without a visit to the terrace in front of the Chalet du Mont-Royal. It's not the only place to get an overview of the city, the river, and the countryside beyond, but it's the most spectacular. On clear days you can see not only the downtown skyscrapers, but also Mont-Royal's sister mountains—Monts St-Bruno, St-Hilaire, and St-Grégoire. These isolated peaks, called the Montérégies, or Mountains of the King, rise dramatically from

the flat countryside. Be sure to take a look inside the chalet, especially at the murals depicting scenes from Canadian history. There's a snack bar in the back.

breathtaking view...but don't get lost!

The view of downtown from the Chalet really is amazing. And the park in general is really great. However, I highly suggest obtaining a "plan du Mont- Royal" before setting out. It's easy to get lost on the paths, even when following signs with arrows. They are doing some path re-construction, and we were a bit turned around with out a map.
