Nous avons passé un beau moment aux chutes de Plaisance. Quelle belle surprise ! Ça vaut le détour...

This is a good trail for starters but the trail itself is really boring ( if you have experiences ). If you are looking for a good view of the waterfall and want to be really close of it you need to go off trail which can be dangerous if you aren’t careful since you will have to walk and climb on rocks that are pretty steep. If you do so, the trail will turn good and actually fun to do.

A short and easy trail that takes you to a couple lookout points to see the beautiful waterfalls.

Beautiful falls with a fee to enter but was able to hike the top of the falls and swim in the river. Beautiful little spots along the trail to sit on the beach.

Très court comme randonnée mais la vue vaut le détour ! Parfait pour les enfants !

The attraction is a gigantic waterfall spread out on almost 2km. I strongly recommend the lake trail just before; it's way better and FREE!

Relatively short hike, but great interpretive trail, and the falls are very impressive.

I haven't yet visited the Luskville falls but as far as I know this is the most spectacular waterfall near Ottawa. It costs $6/adult (kids under 12 are free) to walk the trail but I think its worth it. The whole trail is near or next to the river and there are several good view points to see the falls. There are also interesting interpretative panels about a village that was drowned in the area. There's also a little interpretative centre.
