We drove here with friends for an afternoon outing. There is a short pathway around the Bowl with excellent views of the crater, over looking Hamilton and Lake Ontario.

Brilliant view of the city. It was a little difficult to see the Falls and get to the lookout point as the ground was extremely soggy/flooded.

Beautiful view over the city of Hamilton, great view of the falls. I imagine spring time run off would be amazing to see. Next time we will bring hiking boots and go down to the bottom.

No it's free with a good parking area, signage could be a bit better. A great off the beaten path for this natural wonder. Hit up Memphis Fire BBQ while you are in the area. Great Food!
