Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful hike with Coach Tickner and three other friends from downtown Montreal to the peak, passing through McGill Univ. Lots of people on the trail in Mont Royal Park. It's about 1.2 miles from downtown to Mont Royal Chalet, which has facilities and a nice lookout. From here, the peak is another 0.8 miles or so to the NW, which is accessible from a smaller trail that heads past the large radio tower and through some woods. No views from the peak itself, which is in a small clearing with a small concrete building.
