Gilmour Hill and Trail

Gilmour Hill is a 1.1 km road going through Battlefields Park (Plains of Abraham area) and connecting Champlain Boulevard with Québec City's Upper Town (Haute-Ville). Built in 1931, the road was not designed for winter use and major works were undertaken in 2014-2015 to allow its year-round opening. A safe multi-use trail was also integrated into the cliff for pedestrians and cyclists. The trail covers more than one kilometre and focuses on the beauty and history of the premises with its rest areas and interpretive panels.
