Lower Punchbowl Falls and Devil’s Punchbowl

 Lower Punchbowl Falls

 To reach it from the QEW, take Centennial Parkway, turn left onto King St. E, then turn right onto Mountain Ave. S. Follow it to the end. The Bruce Trail begins at the very end of this road. Follow the Bruce Trail to Lower Punchbowl Falls.



 So I had heard that the water flow was good at the Devil's Punchbowl so we thought we would go check it out. We had never been to the bottom of Lower Punchbowl Falls , this was our fisrt time . But we did not make it far as the trail was very icy. We would like to try to go back when trail is less icy.












 Devil’s Punchbowl

To reach the Devil’s Punchbowl by car, exit from the QEW onto Centennial Parkway South. Go up the escarpment until you reach Green Mountain Road, then turn left. Go left again on First Road East, and follow the signs.
To reach the Devil’s Punchbowl via a walking trail, take the Stoney Creek section of the Bruce Trail or the Dofasco 2000 Trail.





We drove to the parking lot and walked and checked out the Devil’s Punchbowl  we think that this is the most water flow we have seen as we usually go in the warmer weather and there is no water than. You can luck out from the winter and after rain.

Billy Green Falls

Billy Green is on Centennial Parkway it has a wider shoulder to park your car at but becareful as it is  a busy area.
This waterfall had a great flow to it.
Also a nice mist was coming off of it.
First time being here.

Billy Green Falls is located on the west side of Centennial Parkway at the second ravine on the right side when driving up the Niagara Escarpment. It can be seen from the roadway and is one waterfall that is viewed by many, yet most of them have no idea as to its name.

Felker's Falls - March 2015

After I finished work today my Husband said would you like to go check out some waterfalls.
I said yes.
 It was cool out and sunny but a nice day.
The water was flowing very nicely.


We went under the railing and walked down to the top of the waterfall
