CULTURAL & GEOLOGICAL HISTORY
CURF TIP: Balls Falls is home to two waterfalls that are both beautiful and easily accessible. However if your feeling more adventurous and want a better view you can hike up the creek bed to the base of he lower Falls. . . . #naturephotography #endoftherainbow #waterfall #waterfallhunter #ballsfalls #ballsfallsconservationarea #waterfallsofcanada #waterfallsofontario #lowerfalls #trailrunning #newbalancetrailrunners #Canada150 #canadaday #discoverontario #exploreontario #explorecanada #🍁 #2souls1adventure #curfmanroadtrip2017 #curfmans
You can still see some of the structures including:
- blacksmith shop
- lime kiln
- flour mill
- restored church
- original family home of the Balls.
The area was once active due to the saw mills, wool mills and other mills operated by the Balls which drew people to set up home there. The hamlet consisted of quite a few inhabitants. Development in the areas below the escarpment due to the arrival of the railways led to people moving away from the Ball’s Falls area.
Absolutely beautiful waterfalls, well groomed trails! Brought our two dogs here and they just loved hiking to both falls-not even a far distance apart. The old buildings were interesting to peak...
Ball's Falls conservation area has two wonderful waterfalls you can hike to as well as a number of preserved buildings to visit on site. Parking is available on site for a small fee. Wonderful...
Take in history at the small village of Balls Falls, and either stroll on the park near the great Information Center Or Hike down along the river and be dazzled by its beauty. A magical place Enjoy
