Sydenham Falls

                                            Lower Sydenham Falls


 Middle Sydenham Falls


Upper Sydenham Falls


The portion of the Bruce Trail that runs north from Sydenham St. in Dundas leads to three waterfalls, the Upper, Middle, and Lower Sydenham Falls. From Dundas, take Sydenham St. north, and you will find access to the Bruce Trail just past Crowley Crt. A short way down the trail is a railway overpass and the Lower Sydenham Falls is beneath it. As you follow the trail upwards, you will come to some wooden steps. The Middle Sydenham Falls is off to your right. It is a bit difficult to get down to. At the top of the stairs, turn right and you will head towards the Upper Sydenham Falls.

Directions from Hwy 403:  From Hwy 403 take the Hwy 6 N (Guelph) exit and travel approximately 3 km to Hwy 5 E. (Dundas St. E.). Turn left on Hwy 5 E. and then turn left onto Sydenham Rd. At the bottom of the Escarpment, turn right onto Livingstone Dr. and park on the side of the road in front of Cascades Park. Follow the Bruce Trail at the north-end of the park to the old railway bridge. The waterfall is under the old railway bridge.

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.
