“The Chalet is actually not the main attraction, its the 180 degree view of the city. Take Serpentine path , or Camille Houde trail to access the Mont Royal Chalet , the paths along the way will also make you pass by Beaver lake ( how Canadian eh ! ). You can lounge / run / bike here during the summer or have some winter fun on the outdoor ice rink.”
