There's a nice lookout over the city. However there's plenty of ticks, so watch out. Parking is free since the meter is locked in a cage.

You can get a great view of Stoney Creek and east Hamilton from the lookout. It's a small conservation area that also offers a small stroll. Across from the parking lot is the start of the 11km Dofasco Trail.

My significant other and I were trying to see as many falls in Hamilton as possible (long story short, impossible because they are gorgeous and you need time to appreciate them!) and while we visited 2 other falls on this day, we left the Devil's...More
