Well worth the visit. We took the bus and there is quite a walk from the bus stop but it isn't too bad. We are both over 60 and had no issues.

Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the

outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature
walks that cater to every season and level of athlete.
In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and
ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its
pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and
