This wooden walkway was built in the late 1950s and provides a staircase to the Plains of Abraham. It has several viewpoints and provides great views of the St Lawrence river.

Well maintained walkway. Good views. There is a viewing point and small garden at the end. Information plaque also gives details of its inception.

This is a lovely walk from the Chateau Frontenac along the Terrase Dufferin. You then have to climb over 300 steps up to the promenade. It's then a boardwalk across to the citadelle. The views on the top are really good.

In such a hilly spot, it was a nice change to find somewhere that was flat to walk on. Full of people on a lovely summers day, it was a great walk. The river flowing alongside was another point of interest, with its width and boats. Do stop and view the dig underneath via the Perspex domes.

Nice easy walk with beautiful view on the St-Lawrence river, the ferry service, Ile d'Orléans and the other shore (Lévis). Lovely during the evening too. Easy to access, a must see.
