“one of the most unforgettable sights”

Devil's Punchbowl is a ribbon waterfall 37 metres (121 feet) in height and a crest width of 3 metres (10 feet). Located at the Devil's Punchbowl Conservation Area in Stoney Creek, the area actually contains two separate falls: the Upper Falls is the classical shape, while the Lower is the ribbon type. Known at one time as Horseshoe Falls, it is the third highest waterfall in Hamilton. The Devil's Punchbowl does dry up often and has water flowing after rainfalls and during the winter snow melt. Often when water is flowing, it is a trickle- however, this is still an impressive sight, as this thin ribbon waterfall falls 37 metres before making contact with anything.  Widely hailed as one of the Niagara Escarpment's most unforgettable sights, it consists of colorful layers of stratified rock. The Devil's Punchbowl was formed at the end of the last Ice Age by the melted ice, which rushed in torrents over the Stoney Creek Escarpment.

Wasn't any water, so little more than some nice rock formations.

The falls sometimes are dried up like the day were where there. But just around the corner is the Punch Bowl Country Market that you shouldn't miss. The meat turnovers are amazing. The lemon loaf would be great at tea time.
