Devil's Punchbowl

DPCA was acquired by HCA in 1969 for its significant location on the escarpment. The property contains two waterfalls and offers visitor parking and trail access to lookout areas with spectacular views of Stoney Creek, Hamilton Harbour, the Punchbowl, and the gorge. From the parking lot, visitors can also access the Dofasco 2000 Trail connecting to Saltfleet Conservation Area.

This day-use area has become very popular, and high visitation is straining the parking capacity and site facilities. This Master Plan will update and replace the Devil’s Punchbowl Master Plan of 1980. The plan will consolidate all studies of DPCA since 1980, supply current mapping and site analysis, and further guide HCA’s visitor management, natural area conservation, and operation of the conservation area.

HCA recently acquired new lands at the Devil’s Punchbowl Conservation Area (DPCA), these lands will be included in the new Master Plan. More information is available on our website
