This is a nice place to visit if you don't have a lot of time. Make sure you explore both stairways. When you get to the bottom, go by the weeping wall. Very pretty. You are in the woods so there are bugs.

We regularly visit Devil's Punchbowl and have taken many visitors there. It is especially pretty in the fall. It presents a unique nature experience. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because the access can be difficult for any physically-challenged person. It can...More
