Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, Quebec City

4.5
#1 of 103 in Nature in Quebec
Look down over Quebec's highest cascade from atop a suspension bridge at Parc de la Chute-Montmorency. Plunging from a height of 83 m (272 ft), the falls stand 30 m (98 ft) taller than the more famous Niagara Falls. During the colder months, the falls feature a cone of ice known as the Sugar Loaf at their base. Ride a zipline or walk along a clifftop trail in the surrounding park; feel free to bring food with you for a picnic. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Quebec City holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • In May the Park is beautiful. Big flow of the fall. Stroll in the park with the stroller. But expect a baby carrier if you want to go down the stairs along the falls

  • You can reach the waterfall just bus 800 from Québec City. For the fare you must provide suitable 3.50 CAD. The drive took about 40 min. The body of water was impressive and imposing alluvial Woods. Detour is worthwhile and fits well in a day program E.g. after a city tour.

  • Well worth a trip out to this park to see the falls. Excellent views of the falls, but you couldn't pay me to get on that zipline.  more »

  • I live 10mins away from that place and to be honest, I have never paid for parking. I don't understand why people would pay for parking when you can park your car for free in the residential streets near the park? That's what I always do! There's no time limit and it's free. Now, to the park.. It's amazing to see at night or day! If you want to have an superb experience, go all the way downstairs and walk close to the fall. You'll earn a shower for free!! You get splashed and it's simply a fun experience. Just bring dry clothes because you'll be dripping wet! There are places for kids, picnics, dogs, bikes and for adventurers. If you want to see more of that river, go across the bridge (transit) and you'll find another path to explore more of that beautiful river and nature! Great for photographers ! At night, the fall is lighted with different colours!
  • don't miss this place! don't take the stairs if you are afraid of heights or physically limited in any way. beautiful natural wonder. comfortable waiting area. Can be bitterly cold in winter
  • My wife and I visited on a hot late summer day. It's easy to just drive up and park the car. The views of the fall and the surrounding area are very impressive - totally worth the drive. First take in the views from the bridge over the falls first, then take the hike down to the bottom of the falls. And then the gruesome hike back up - there's about 20 stories worth of wooden stairs, with plenty of locals using it as their actual workout. The views of the river are wonderful.
  • We had a very good time here despite the icy weather on the day we picked to go. The walkway towards the falls had beautiful views the whole way, and the bridge over the falls lets you hear the water right beneath your feet and even feel the slight rumble. We heard about the paid parking but nobody was there to collect, so we just parked and didn't have any problems. Definitely worth visiting!
  • This park was lots of fun. I would even venture to say I had more fun here than at Niagara falls. Great time. Marvelous views. Nice long stair hike and sweet cold wet breeze. Lovely
