for only $2 to park you can walk down a short/uncrowded trail to bottom. When we went there was no waterfall - everything was dried up just a dirty water spot. Still the rock itself was beautiful and great views at the top! About a hour drive from Niagara Falls but so worth it! We were here less than a... More

It's one of the places if you enjoy waterfalls and are near the area, go for the drive. Small lot that accommodates I believe 15 cars and there's a $2 parking fee to walk and see! Great views of Hamilton and surrounding area on a clear day and worth the drive and parking fee. Hold onto your kids as it's... More

This place rocks! Ha, get it? I'll show myself out. Anyway, it's definitely worth seeing if you're happening by it. I say this because it's a hit or a miss; it looks a lot better when the waterfall is actually flowing, but the last time I visited the waterfall wasn't actually active. Still an interesting rock formation to say the... More

Was so close and did not know this existed. Worked in Hamilton and was told about the falls, worth it to go and see. The drive up is quite steep and kind of cool. When you get to the top it's a incredible view seeing all the different layers of rock the punch bowl has to offer.

Very close to where we live. We had never been. At this time of year there was quite abit of water coming over and snow still attached to the side of the bowl. I can see how it would be hard to see anything when the plants are in full leaf. No restrooms or picnic areas. Parking lot is small.

This is a nice place to take in one of the many water falls that Hamilton has to offer. It's very high and I feel that safety is a bit of a concern the fence should be redone around the hole. The scenic view is wonderful, to over look the big city is breath taking. There are some trails to... More

A friend and I decided to take a trip to the Devil's Punchbowl for a hike. We parked up by the cross where it's free and made our way down the side. It's a fun hike, but can be very dangerous if you go off the trails. The view from the cross is also great for taking pictures, especially when... More

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...
