This is a valid waterfall and suggest viewing after a rainfall. There is parking available for a small fee. Please be careful and stay on the trails and paths. Too many falls have occurred.

I was looking forward to seeing more water but its probably due to the drought we've been having this year there was any. I only got to see a really small stream that was far away. Also they should allow minimum 30 minutes parking. Not too much to see here. Great views of the lakeshore on a clear day though.

This is a great spot to stop for a hike or if you just need a few minutes of peace anytime of day. The panoramic view of the city is a must see for any visitor to Hamilton.

While this is an amazing view there are definite safety concerns. The barn has amazing home products. I love the quiche mmm mmm. Everything in the bakery is amazing and it's like being in grandmas pantry.

Do not expect to see running water everyday because you may be disappointed to see it in dry seasons. The best part of the fall is not the water, but the outlook of the whole city of Hamilton. You can see as far as CN tower across Lake Ontario in a good clear day.

Great view of Hamilton, nice cross but the railing prevents a great view of the bowl itself (from my opinion). I found it a bit ridiculous that they charged for parking.

A good attraction for the whole family, kids will be in aw. Must wear proper footwear if expecting to use the trails in the area. Stay behind the safety rails it's for your safety. The water fall is an example of the many water falls in Hamilton and surrounding area. You will take many pics to show others later on.

The view across the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario are wonderful. The falls of the punchbowl are a testament to the wonders of natural erosion. (Just stay on the right side of the fences!)

The problem is the actual bowl itsel is so grown up around it and the safety rails are about 10 feet back . You can't really see a whole lot . With some clean up work and building a good viewing platform into the bowl it would be worth going to see . There was no sign out front of... More
