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.

Very nice place to visit. You can easy walk around and get close to the falls or just see them from the bridge on top. The cable car is bit pricey but is a nice ride. The house at the top is beautiful.

We spent half a day there, hiked from the lower side parking through the side stairs to the upper side parking. Roughly 400 feet vertical. Great view of the fall. In fact, Montmorency Falls has 1.5 times bigger vertical than Niagara Falls.

Beautiful, not too expensive. But it's very busy. Probably better with older kids, the walk was long for my 4 years old.

Impressive falls and crazily impressive nearly 500 steps that appear to cling to the side of the wall, in order for people to reach the top of the falls.

This is a good site to see in the winter too, if your there for the winter carnival. Its frozen, and I had never seen the ice climbers before. They climb up the frozen waterfall. Interesting.

Amazing Monterey falls park is only minutes away from old Quebec City - Easy cab ride. Lunch at panache mobile on the island is a fun experience with superb view of the Vinyard on the island... The houses on the island is quite charming ......More

Worth the look if you're walking. If you're into zip lining or rockwall climbing you can do it here.

Spectacular view and the mist is a great way to cool off after the walk around the property. English and French (as well as I noticed visitors from around the world) speakers equally accepted😉

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

Some people are nervous about the bridge - it isn't for everyone - but don't let that keep you from visiting! You can still enjoy the views even if you aren't ready to cross the bridge.
