This is a great site that shouldn't be missed. Duchesnay Falls starts as a series of low, picturesque cascades on the river. The river soon breaks into two main channels, each which tumble over several different waterfalls. The east channel has two main waterfalls as well as a "staircase-like" cascade. The uppermost falls is the "staircase" cascade, where a narrow section of the river flows down through the forest over a narrow bedrock exposure at about a 30 degree angle. The second waterfall is a 8 to 10 m high cascade, occuring just 20-30 m downstream of the split between the two channels. This falls is shown in one of the links at the bottom of this page. From the spot where this photograph was taken, you can see the West, Upper falls just to the left of the edge of the photo. You can easily get to the base of this waterfall by finding a short route off the main path. The third, lowest falls on the east branch is the waterfall shown above. This is a good slide-class waterfall, falling about 7 to 8 m over a reach of the same length.   (updated June 20, 2014).
