This trail is a loop of approximately 3 km. Duchesnay Falls starts as a series of low, picturesque cascades on the river. The river soon breaks into two main channels, each which tumbles over several different waterfalls. The west channel carries well over half of the river's discharge and has two main waterfalls.
The lower falls on the west branch is the largest of all at Duchesnay, and is a cascade that falls roughly 8 to 10 m and is close to the same width at its base. The lower falls grades into the upper falls, which is a long cascade that drops roughly 10 m to over 20 m. Hikers can walk right to the edge of the upper falls, by diverting off the main trail and carefully walking out across the exposed bedrock.
