Montreal's Mont-Royal Ranked #6 Best Jogging Trail In The World

If you jog in Montreal, then you've no doubt hit the trails littered up, down, and all over Mount Royal. Magical to run through anytime of year (save winter) the mountain offers a fantastic view of foliage and nature as you work up a sweat. Montrealers aren't the only ones aware of the amazing jogging routes Mount Royal offers, as CNN cites the trails as the reason Montreal made their top ten world's best city jogging trails.

Ranked number six on the worldwide ranking, CNN technically puts Mont-Royal Park on the list, though we're assuming they're referring to the whole mountain, only because that would make their description of the area as "a network of jogging trails that offer beautiful views of changing fall leaves" make a bit more sense.

Avid joggers in Montreal, or anyone who can appreciate the beauty of Mount Royal in the fall, would have to wholeheartedly agree with CNN. Nothing beats a solid run up and down the mountain in autumn, when the leaves offer a colourful distraction and the weather is cool enough so that you won't get all overheated.

To see how Montreal ranked on CNN's list, here are the news organizations choices for the world's best jogging cities, with trail included.

  1. London's Thames Path
  2. New Orleans' French Quarter jogging tours
  3. Sydney's Bay Run Trail
  4. Shanghai's Xuhui Riverside trail
  5. New York's High Line park trail
  6. Montreal's Mount Royal trails
  7. Hong Kong's Victoria Peak to Pokfulam Resevoir Hong Kong Trail
  8. Dallas' Trinity Skyline Trail
  9. Chattanooga's Riverwalk
  10. Tokyo's Yoyogi Park

This isn't the first time CNN has shown Montreal some love. as they've already ranked Montreal as one of the best cities for biking and partying/nightlife, and also named our clock tower one of the most beautiful in the world. CNN, you're doing all the things right.
