Plaisance Falls

100 Malo CR, Plaisance (Québec), Canada

Visit the Plaisance Falls natural and historic site, a great spot for a picnic with family or friends! A scenic lookout, observation points and a hiking trail let you get right up close to the site's spectacular natural beauty. With their 63-metre vertical drop, the Falls were an important economic factor in the founding of the 19th-century village of North Nation Mills, now just a memory. On-site interpretive panels bring to life this important chapter in the history of the Petite Nation.
