McMaster University recognizes that the University and surrounding Hamilton area, including their nature spaces, are situated on traditional territories shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and Anishnaabe nations. These lands are protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum belt. The wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need.

Devil’s Punchbowl

Hamilton Conservation Authority

Consisting of colourful layers of stratified rock, Devil’s Punchbowl is widely considered to be one of the Escarpment’s most unforgettable sights. The conservation area itself consists of two separate falls, the Lower Punchbowl Falls with a 5.5-metres drop and the Upper Punchbowl Falls with a 33.8 meter drop making it the third highest waterfall in Hamilton.

From the conservation area you can also connect to the Dofasco 2000 Trail, an 11.5-kilometre recreational trail through upper Stoney Creek. Come enjoy this Stoney Creek beauty and the surrounding natural areas!
