Located at the foot of Mont-Sainte-Anne, Jean-Larose Fall is one of the most impressive waterfalls in the Côte-de-Beaupré region, standing just seven meters shorter than Montmorency Falls. A brand new staircase has been built to reach the bottom of the waterfall and admire its cascade divided into three tiers. A breathtaking site for a picnic in the fresh air, a short family hike, or a cardio workout!

Free access from May 15 to November 30

How to get there


The Jean-Larose Loop

After passing the traffic light at Mont-Sainte-Anne on Route 360, park in the parking lot on your right, just after the bridge. The Jean-Larose loop trail, of easy to intermediate difficulty, leads to a staircase of about 350 steps that borders the fall and provides access to spectacular viewpoints. The tiers are interspersed with rest stops to catch your breath on the way back up. You can also return via a fairly wide trail that climbs gently, making for a total loop of 4 km.
