Ball’s Falls Fall Colours
This is the perfect place to go whether you want a short or long walk or hike. Parts of it are on the Bruce Trail. And there is a short walk up the river to the Upper Falls that, in this time of year is quite spectacular with the Fall colours. The reds are a bit late in coming this year, so I had to tweak the photos a bit. I hope you don’t mind. The parking is $8 a person. We have been there at times past 4:30 when the office closes and ended up not having to pay. Not sure if this is usual or not. Seniors are $6 - that helps a bit. Although, I don’t mind paying really as it goes to support these beautiful places.
There are a bunch of old buildings there - old mill, house, blacksmith barn, etc but none have been open any time we have been gone through the park. We went on a 10 km hike a couple of weeks ago from this location - north along the Bruce Trail but decided we just wanted a day of puttering around and enjoying the scenery and taking photos. It was the perfect day for this.
