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...

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
