Devil's Rock
Location Ontario

Devil's Rock, or Devils Rock, is a granite escarpment, located 5 kilometres (3 mi) south of Haileybury, Ontario, Canada. It is dated to be 2,200 million years old and it has a face of 600 feet (180 m) rising 300 feet (91 m) above Lake Timiskaming. People have been rock climbing Devil's Rock in recent years. There are five tunnels in the cliff's face that were made from rock blasting between 1907 and 1912. It is a local treasured area of beauty with hiking trails, and is often depicted in local art.
