The site is named after the Ball family, who were originally from Germany and had mill operations in the area, says Tourism Niagara.

Back in the 19th century, the region was nothing but a small village where the Ball family lived and worked.

Some buildings from that time period are still standing today, including the blacksmith shop, flour mill, restored church, and the Ball family home.

According to AllTrails, the waterfall hike at Ball’s Falls is approximately 1.8 kilometres out and back.

The popular trail takes about 29 minutes to complete, on average. It’s open year-round and dogs are welcome on a leash.

This is the perfect day trip adventure for outdoor lovers and nature seekers. You won’t be disappointed.
