There are a couple ways to see the 83m (272-ft.) falls. A path from the lower parking area leads to the base of the falls, where the water comes crashing down. The view is spectacular from here in all seasons. Stairs ascend from here to the top, with viewing platforms along the way. At the top, a footbridge spans the water where it flows over the cliff. If you don't want to walk, a cable car runs from the parking lot to a terminal alongside the falls, with a pathway that leads close the water's edge. At that top terminal is Manoir Montmorency, a villa that contains an interpretation center, a cafe, and a restaurant. The dining room and porch have a side view of the falls; reservations are suggested. Parking is available at the top of the falls by the villa, too.
