Lots of steps and stairs provide beautiful views, with places to stop and rest along the way. I've been in winter and in summer and it's hard to say which one I like better! Great walk anytime of year.

There you can get a very beautiful view and I can imagine it is a wonderful place for walks in hot days. It was a bit too cold for me when I was there and quite windy :/

So glad that we took the time to walk the 300 + steps. The views of the river were worth it! The steps have breaks some with benches so you can sit and take a rest. I would highly recommend taking this walk right to the end

Well worth the walk up and down the stairs and all the way to the end...wear your running shoes! It's a very picturesque view and opportunity to meet other travellers.

Also wonderful area for people watching at any time of the day. Step into the Hotel Frontenac also to see the glittery lobby of a grand dame of Quebec.

Take the time to examine the guideposts and maps before venturing forward or you will be in for a very long walk. Lots of rich history with information posts and statuary along the way.
