Must see · State Park · Waterfall
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.

  • I really appreciated my great experience here because your park is well maintained and clean, i loved mostly, when i went here, it's free, also this park has very good views of the falls, the twin cities, the island, etc. and this park has play structures for childrens. My dislike, i went here, it's little cold outside.
  • Awesome park. It’s a shame the cable cars and zip line were closed because of COVID but still worth stopping by, going for a leisurely walk and admiring the falls
