Long Description:
La rivière prend sa source dans la réserve faunique des Laurentides, à 80 km au nord de la ville de Québec. La zone de tête de cette rivière se situe tout près de la ligne de partage des eaux entre les rivières Jacques-Cartier, rivière Montmorency et Malbaie.

La rivière Montmorency coule du nord vers le sud sur une longueur d'environ 97 km. Son bassin versant couvre environ 1 100 km2 de terres aux trois-quarts boisées et en grande partie inhabitées.

Tout près de son embouchure, à la limite des villes de Québec et de Boischatel, la rivière franchit une ligne de faille et forme la célèbre chute Montmorency.

The Montmorency River flows from Lake Montmorency in a southerly direction through the undeveloped Canadian Shield of the Laurentides Wildlife Reserve. Reaching the northern part of the municipality of Château-Richer, it flows between high rocky cliffs that in some places are more than 600 metres (1,969 ft) high. Thereafter, it passes through the municipalities of Sainte-Brigitte-de-Laval, Beauport, and Boischatel, where the course of the river is characterized by the presence of numerous rapids before plunging 83 metres (272 ft) over the Montmorency Falls.
