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.

This park requires a car or bus ride from Quebec City, about 20 minutes, but it worth it. The falls are spectacular as pictures attest, but take time to enjoy the whole park After viewing from the bottom (take time to walk around the base)...More

Although it was raining on the day we visited Montmorency, it is still an area of outstanding beauty and lies just outside Quebec.

We parked at the top and walked across the foot bridge overlooking the falls. Nice view. There's a jungle gym for the kids which was nice too.

Sorry for the delay in responding. The bridge over the falls is quite close (walking distance). Let me know if I did not answer your question. Yes I believe taxis were plentiful. We had our own car.
If you are in a wheelchair, what would you be able to see and do at the Park?

You could see everything with or without a wheelchair, except I don't know if you will be able to cross the bridge.

Hello, Is this bridge sometimes scary for people to walk on if they're afraid of heights? Thanks

I'm not afraid of heights but I would say yes. You can definitely enjoy the waterfall and walkways without going over the bridge but if there are many people walking around on the bridge you will feel it shake slightly
