A quick walk with a waterfall.

The Devil's Punch Bowl is one of the highest waterfalls in the area! With a quick decent, you can view this beauty.

From the parking lot there are several viewing areas that will allow you to see the falls from the top and a huge platform to see the Hamilton skyline. However, if you're feeling a little more adventurous, to get to to the bottom first find and follow the Bruce Trail Side Trail markers (at the forest edge, blue) to the forest floor. Then simply take a left and follow the main Bruce Trail markers (white). Tada! 

The best time to see this waterfall is in spring after heavy rain (April/May) as during the summer months it can dry up.
