You can follow Quebec’s changing colors with this neat little tracking tool:

Some cool places to see the colour also are:

Mont Royal Park

If you don’t get the chance to head outside of the city, don’t worry; there are many great places within Montreal to check out the fall colours. Mont Royal is a favorite due to its extensive trails and paths. For easy access, use the #11 Bus (east or westbound). You can also walk up from downtown, use the path from the Park Avenue Cartier Monument or try the escarpment trail on the eastern slope. Other areas within Montreal that are great for leaf watching include:

  • Notre Dame des Neiges Cemetery
  • Mont Royal Cemetery
  • Parks Jean Drapeau, Maisonneuve and Angrignon

Mont St. Hilaire

Located just east of Montreal, Mont St. Hilaire is a perfect choice to take in the autumn season. Not only will you find breathtaking vistas, you’ll also discover numerous apple orchards and farmland that add to the country charm. Mont St. Hilaire is also a nature reserve, with the western part open to the public for hiking and cross-country skiing, for a small fee. To get there from Montreal, head to the south shore, take the 20 east, exit on Route 229 and head to Beloeil. Once you reach Beloeil you take Route 116 across the bridge, turn right on Fortier, then left on Chemin de la Montagne and head to Gault Nature Reserve. Enjoy!

Other similar areas just outside the city include:

  • Mont Tremblant (north)
  • Laurentians (north)
  • Mont St. Bruno, Mont Rougemont and Mont Saint-Gregoire (southeast)
