We stopped in right next to the heart of the canal right next to Atwater Market. We didn't have time to walk the whole length, but those stopping into Atwater should definitely make the slight detour here to have a look at this historic place.
Fun bike path with minimal hills riding along the canal and to return you can bike through a series of connected parks on the east side of the island. Wonderful park on the peninsula extending into Lac St Louis
The good part is that the bike path is fantastically well designed, you hardly ever need to cross any streets let alone ride through traffic. This fact is well used by roadies, in fact we've been passed by a three-rider paceline in matching kit, which...More
I see that some of the reviews are negative; don't listen to them. No, this is not a ride through the countryside. But it varies from cityscapes to beautiful tree-lined sections. It has interesting history and a good surface for riding. And it ends at...More
On vacation in Montréal, I was eager to do a ten-mile run starting from downtown, heading up the Canal-de-Lachine and then back down to waterfront in Vieux-Montréal. The canal takes the runner or cyclist through a varied landscape of old warehouses, graffiti-covered unused buildings, luxury...More
I read that this was a very scenic trail. The entire loop takes around 3-4 hours to bike. For the entire first half of the loop you get to ride along the canal thru graffiti covered industrial buildings, paralleling roads with trucks and construction. Once...More
I love to walk along the canal Lachine. 100 years ago, Canal Lachine was the industrial heart of Montreal. Today, most of the factories have gone and the buildings have been transformed into condos. Many new condos are being built! One can regret the gentrification...More
Fabulous riding along the canal and can then ride through lovely neighborhoods all the way to St Anne de Bellevue. Construction and confusing sections in the city can be difficult but once you find your way beyond that the ride is spectacular. Don't leave your...More
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.

Ya that is probably your best bet. But if you want to be a bit closer to Old Montreal, you can park in Pointe St.Charles on the south side of canal, on any side street it's free also - and then walk east along canal to the... More
