In order to appreciate the splendid colours of the foliage in this time of the year — which make Quebec famous around the world — we went to the Mount Royal in two separate occasions.
Around Summit Woods, October 8th
For our first visit, on October 8th, we went to the Summit Wood area, up the Belveder Rd and behind the Saint-Joseph Oratory. The colours of the foliage was disappointing but it gave us the opportunity to view the city from the Summit Circle Look Out and to admire the eccentric houses of this area of Westmount.
Mount Royal Park, October 16th
The following week-end, on October 16th, we went to the other side of the mountain, to the Mount Royal Park. It was getting a little late in the season, but the foliage was still beautiful, although not at its peek. We went up to Remembrance Road, then around the Beaver Lake, then to the Mt Royal Chalet to admire the view from the Belvédère Kondiaronk. Finally we went down the Olmsted Trail to Cedar Ave, then Pine Ave to the Percy Walters Park and finally Redpath Street to the Museum of Fine Arts.
