Took extended family for an early December hike into the Devil's punchbowl. Wonderful experience. Youngest was 3, oldest was 55. Spent more time than we expected because it was spectacular. Highly recommend a visit to the bakery when you finish your hike.

Lots of parking, and an interesting giant cross there. Took the kids to hike around and explore. Beautiful falls and scenery. Don't forget to bring your camera and a picnic basket!

Came here on a local's recommendation. The geological feature is very interesting. The views from the end of the trail are amazing! The falls were very small when we were there! A little more water and these would be a totally impressive site!

When you work in Stoney Creek, it's pretty neat that you can easily go to see a waterfall on your lunch break. Took a nice little walk to see the waterfall and then moved on toward the edge of the escarpment to the cross. Great...More

This waterfall looked nice online when I researched before I visited the area. however, when we arrived they were not as nice due to the lack of rain and low water level. you will need a car to travel here.

I visited after a long spell of hot weather in Ontario, so I believe this had a major impact on the amount of water which was cascading over the cliff from the small stream above. The incredible "bowl" which has been carved over thousands of...More

No there is not free parking at Devil's Punchbowl. There is a pay and display machine in the parking lot for you to use. Do not park on the road, as they will ticket all cars parked along the road.
