The Governor's Promenade starts on the grassy hill on the far side of the Citadel at a viewing point on Ave du Cap Diamant. It's a boardwalk that connects to Dufferin Terrace and allows visitors an optional route to return to Chateau Frontenac when visiting the Citadel and the Museum of Plains of Abraham. This boardwalk has many steps because of the differences in elevation so I recommend starting this walk from the Citadel area in order to walk down the steps to reach the Dufferin Terrace section. Walking this route may take about 20 minutes.

If you start this walk from the Dufferin Terrace, the section called the Governor's Promenade begins just beyond the sloping Dufferin Slides, just past the foot of Rue St-Denis. This walkway between the Dufferin Slides and the Citadel is narrower than the broad Dufferin Terrace boardwalk.

If you are just looking for a spot to see panoramic views of the river and beyond without tree stops obscuring the view, I suggest walking up to La Terrasse St-Denis close to the Dufferin Slides. It's the hilly grassy area just off the foot of Rue St-Denis, accessible by a few stairs from Dufferin Terrace. It takes less time and effort than walking along the Governor's Promenade and the reward of a magnificent sight is certain.

Its a long Giant boardwalk which connects Plains of Abraham to Dufferin Terrace and Chateau Frontenac.either you climb up the stairs nearly 300-400 steps from Dufferin Terrace or go up from the plains green lawns to see the beautiful frt walled along the cliff of Saint Lawrence River .Though it may be adventurous, exhaustive but you will love the Panoramic view from above .worth seeing.

You get a good view of St. Lawrence River and the Old Port especially in the section closer to Terrasse Dufferin. Of course you can get similar views on Terrasse Dufferin but at a lower elevation. A better reason for hiking the La Promenade des Gouverneurs is to get from Terrasse Dufferin to the Plains of Abraham and/or to the entrance of La Citadelle.

Beautiful, beautiful walking path. Lots of steps, but there is a lot of fair warning with posted signs. Wonderful views.

I enjoyed my walk here. The weather was nice and the walk was pleasant. I would highly suggest starting the walk from the Plains of Abraham to avoid all of the uphill steps. There is only one short flight to walk up going in this direction but plenty going down. I passed many folks having difficulty with all of the stairs heading up. Very pleasant going downhill.
