Owner description: These 275-foot falls on the Montmorency River tower higher than even the legendary Niagara Falls.The 2013 season promises to be exhilarating for people who will visit Parc de la Chute-Montmorency – Montmorency Falls, the second most visited site of the provincial capital after Old Quebec. The highlight of all the new summer activities is certainly the opening of two via ferrata routes built in the Boischatel fault near the waterfalls. Via ferrata – this is italien for “iron roads”, is an activity accessible to everyone over 12 years old that combines hiking and rock climbing. The two paths are built on the rockface on the eastern side of the waterfall. The less adventurous will also be able to get stunning views of the 83-meter high waterfall aboard the cable car which now runs with sparkling new cabins. History buffs will be glad to know that guided tours are now offered each weekend in the company of Sir Frederick Haldimand, who served as Governor of Quebec from 1778 to 1786 and Mathilde Robin, best known as the Lady in White, who lost her fiancé during the Montmorency Battle in 1759. Guided tours are offered in French or English until Labour Day weekend.

Reviewed 30 June 2014

When we arrived the walkway that takes you close to the falls was closed for repair. And the building with amenities was closed. Admittedly it was April, but there were quite a few disappointed people there.

Make sure you take the Tram! It doesn't have the oomph of Niagra Falls but it's well worth seeing. Great vantage points and you won't get wet.

“Ever Wonder if it is worth seeing??”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

YES YES you will be amazed on the history of the Falls, and what they do in the winter with the falls.
Get some time, take the tram to the top, nice view of the area. It's reasonably priced, so your not going to go broke on it.
They jave a small area you can get something to eat and drink also.

“Fun Destination on Bike Ride from Quebec City”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This park site is a good destination point for a 12 k bike ride out of the city. It provided a nice balance of outdoor activity while visiting Quebec. The trail out is paved and gentle. At the falls, the cable car ride to the top provided a nice aerial view of the big falls, and it was exciting to walk out over the falls on the suspension bridge. We had hoped to walk down the hillside back to the entrance station, but the path was in need of repair.
