Devil's Punchbowl Waterfall Near Toronto Has Magical Rainbow Cliffs

Ontario has no shortage of stunning waterfalls to explore, and this one has some extra beauty to offer. A majestic cascade tumbles over a colourful cliff, and it's a truly breathtaking sight. Next time you're craving an adventure, head out to the Devil's Punchbowl Waterfall near Toronto and soak up the views.

It's impossible to get tired of chasing waterfalls. You can find so many scattered around Ontario, from towering tiered ones to ones you can swim beneath.

This one near Toronto is nothing short of magical. Located along the Niagara Escarpment, the Devil's Punchbowl in Stoney Creek features a waterfall that plunges over colourful cliffs.

The conservation area features two waterfalls, the Upper and Lower Punchbowl Falls.

The Upper Falls is a 33.8-metre ribbon that plummets into a round Punch Bowl and gorge. The Lower Falls, on the other hand, is a 5.5-metre "classical waterfall."

The gorge was created during the last ice age as melt-water rivers carved the rocky escarpment.

You can see multi-coloured layers as you gaze up at the curving cliff from below.

The area can be viewed from a lookout platform near the parking lot. There is a charge of $7.50 per vehicle to park here.

You can continue your adventure along the 11.5-kilometre Dofasco 2000 Trail, which begins at the Devil's Punchbowl and passes through the countryside and over a forest boardwalk.
