I wanted to see this falls as it appears in the horror movie "Silent Hill." (Not to mention that I "collect" waterfalls.) The drive up the escarpment was a bit harrowing for me but the views from the top were incredible. Not many signs to help. We finally found the parking area. You pay $2 to park there - there... More

I've lived in Hamilton for over 20 years now and finally visited the Devils Punchbowl. It is quite a striking attraction. Rock and mineral lovers will really appreciate this formation. Photographers amateur or professional will delight in the various layers of rock and the surrounding area in general.

A great place to take in views of Hamilton and beyond. Take a walk along the paths. Look and wonder about the power it took to cut the falls into the escarpment over millions of years. The lighted cross at night is an added bonus.

It took us lots of driving in the area to find the places. There are signs to the Dofasco walking/biking trail buut no signs telling about the falls. Not even at the parking place right next the falls, which are hidden among lush bushes. We could not find a good overlook place for the falls , a couple areas made... More

As most have said, the falls were all but dry today. I imagine the sights and sounds would be amazing with a bit of water. It's 2 dollars an hour to park by the way. Not an issue but lucky I had a toonie in the car. Awesome view. Can't wait to come back maybe in the fall for some... More

I am sure the falls look beautiful when there is water but currently it is dry. The park should display the information on their website. There is no fee to see the attraction but the minimum rate at the parking lot is $2 (1hour). You will only spend a few minutes on the lookouts, more time is required only if... More

After seeing many pictures online and visiting the city of waterfalls website, we were sadly disappointed to see the lack of falls and view for the actual "punchbowl". There are a couple of lookouts that have been built back from the edge of the escarpment which were very overgrown with plants/vegetation and one nice big lookout that did give a... More

What can I say- it has been a dry summer and no water was falling. No one can do anything about that! The area was beautiful but were disappointed that we didn't get to see the falls. I wish there had been a way to find out that the falls were dried up before we traveled there. There was a... More

At night you see a great big cross all lit up in lights. You can see it from lower Stoney Creek area. The punchbowl is a falls with railings and a look out point. You can hike down below.
