Featured Uses:

Birdwatching, Limited Hiking (intermediate to challenging)

Trails:

The Devil’s Punchbowl has two short trails. The upper trail begins with a stairway that brings visitors to the top of the falls, and then through a small patch of woods overlooking the bowl. The second trail is straight ahead from the parking lot and brings visitors past the small prairie to a long stairway down the slope and into the bowl. Curve to the right and cross the creek to venture the short distance to the natural rock amphitheater, exposed rock face and waterfall. This trail is challenging. Wear sturdy footwear that can get wet. No Rock Climbing. Please stay on trails, respect property boundaries, and refrain from climbing on slopes to protect sensitive soils and plants.
