Best Places to Run in Montreal > Chemin Olmsted/Mont-Royal
Montreal's most scenic running route, Chemin Olmsted, is a large car-free trail that takes you up the Mont-Royal. You can join the trail by two main access points from downtown hotels: 1. in front of the Cartier Statue on Parc Avenue or 2. on Avenue des Pins between Rue Peel and Rue Drummond. The winding crushed rock/dirt path serpentines up the slope past Beaver Lake towards the Chalet du Mont-Royal.
Your uphill climb is rewarded with spectacular views of downtown, the St. Lawrence River and the south shore, which are visible from the observation deck of the chalet. The route continues past the chalet, loops around the summit of the mountain to reconnects with itself. The downhill return to one of your access points is fun and much faster. With a wide car-free trail and amazing views, we believe Chemin Olmsted/Mont-Royal is the top running route in Montreal.
