We spent a couple of hours walking the trails of the Parc des Chutes. They're human-made "chutes" for Hydro Quebec, but that didn't take away from the strength of the main chute, or the beauty of the trails. There are about 4 kilometres of trails,...More

This is an incredible natural wonder. Be sure to tour the falls from both the top and the bottom. Also, had a very good lunch in the restaurant

You can easily see the fall without going hiking. However, you should bring comfortable shoes and go through the forest. Longest hike is an hour.

Just so you know, most of the falls are artificial (provided by a hydroelectric facility) but impressive and fun nonetheless. Good system of trails, marked from easy to difficult. Good place to stop and stretch your legs if you're traveling along Route 20.

We love to see water falls. quite honestly, this was nothing special and warranted only a 5 minute stop. Nice that they had clean bathrooms in power plant next to falls.

I've been to les chutes many times over the years enroute from the Maritimes to Ontario. It's a must-see stop in Riviere du Loup! It's a great place for a stroll, hike or picnic. And where else can you walk the catwalk over top of...More
