THIS WEEKEND ON MOUNT ROYAL

The historic, geographic and cultural link between the river and the mountain defines our city. Les amis de la montagne invites you to discover the rich heritage and the exceptional views that highlights the trail from Mount Royal’s summit to the Saint-Lawrence River.

In Mount Royal Park, take action for the conservation of the mountain's biodiversity by cutting invasive plants in the forest and visit Les amis' kiosk to learn more about the evolution of the mountain’s biodiversity through the centuries.


Guided walk "From the mountain to the river"

This remarkable trail follows the streams that descend the mountain to the river. An invitation to retrace the historic, geographic and cultural links between Mount Royal and the Saint-Lawrence River.

*Les amis de la montagne have partnered with the Centre d'histoire de Montréal this year to offer the guided walk at a reduced price, as well as a discount at the Centre d’histoire to discover the exhibit “La face cachée de la montagne”. This exhibit was created by the Université de Montréal on the occasion of the university’s 100th anniversary to showcase the heritage treasures of the northern slope of Mount Royal. (Valid until April 13, 2014)
