Nature Parks of Montreal Hiking Trails Professional Review and Guide
"There are nine Nature Parks (called parcs-nature in French; formerly called parcs régionals or regional parks) on the territory of the city of Montréal, all located on the north part of the island. Six of the nine are presently open to the public year-round. The five parks described in this guide have a total of over 50km of hiking trails. Marshes, fields, plains, buttes, waterfront areas, streams, beaches, mature forests, undergrowth, rich and varied flora and fauna, historic sites and lookouts are among the many features that make these parks a must for anyone who loves hiking, year-round outdoor activities or simply contemplating the wonders of nature.
The Nature Parks are open to the public seven days a week (year-round), from sunup to sundown. The opening hours of the different visitor centres vary from season to season. There is a fee at all park parking lots. This trail guide includes hiking trails at Parc-Nature de la Pointe-aux-Prairies, Parc-Nature de l'Ile-de-la-Visitation, Parc-Nature du Bois-de-Liesse, Parc-Nature du Bois-de-l'Ile-Bizard, Parc-Nature du Cap-Saint-Jacques, Parc Angrignon, Parc Lafontaine, and Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal National Historic Site of Canada."
