Mont Royal is a striking ridge on the लेle de Montreal in the southwest of the Canadian province of Quebec and at the same time an important landmark in the middle of the city of Montreal. He is the name of the city and is one of the nine heights of the Monteregi Hills.
These shape the plains between the Appalachian Mountains and the Laurentine Mountains. The ridge consists of three peaks: the actual Mont Royal with 233 meters, Colleen D’Autmont with 211 meters and Westmount with 201 meters.
The summit of Mont Royal is a 31.4 meter high Christian monument in the shape of a steel cross and is located on the local mountain in the city of Montreal, Canada. A law says that no more houses can be built than this cross. On Mont Royal, there is much more than the summit crossing. For example the Chalet or Beaver Trail, which leads to a nearby lake.
The entire city center can be seen from the two terraces at Parc du Mont-Royal. On one of these terraces is the Chalet du Mont-Royal, a magnificent Beaux-Arts-style building. At the northern end of the park is the George-Etienne-Cartier Monument, a monument erected in 1919 in memory of noted politician George-Etienne Cartier. The memorial is also the site of Tam-Tam. Outside the park and cemetery, there are other attractions on the slope of Mont Royal. These include St. Joseph Oratory, McGill University and its teaching hospital, Stade Percival-Molson, Université de Monterrell, इकोcole Polytechnique de Montréal and the residential areas of Westmount and Outremont.

The Beaver Trail starts at the chalet and leads to a very scenic lake, as well as a difficult path to the Lex aux Caister. The path is very suitable for families as well as children and offers a mountain bike route in addition to a normal walking trail.
