Well, we did the Breakneck stairway and skipped the Cap-Blanc, but could not resist this one. It starts on the Dufferin Terrace and follows the walls of the fortifications up until you get to the Plains of Abraham and the top of the Citadelle walls....More

This is a lovely walk to take from the Battlefields Park/Plains of Abraham back to the Chateau Frontenac and Dufferin Terrace, especially in the fall when the leaves are changing color.
