This was our favorite stop during our stay in the Hamilton area and was definitely worth the $7/person chage. The $7 charge includes parking, two waterfalls, and a historic village. There is an upper and lower Ball's Falls. Both are short hikes from the visitor...More

Nice hiking area. You can easily hike up to the Upper Falls. Dogs are allowed at Balls Falls they even supply Doggie Bags. Thanksgiving is great to go to the Arts and Craft Show. It is very busy that weekend so go early.

We went to Balls Falls expecting to photograph the Falls. Unfortunately, you can only see a portion of the Falls and it is obscure by trees. The grounds are very well cared for and nice to walk around.

These two falls are a must see for nature lover. The upper falls are most interesting because half the water reaches the falls through a cave and gushes out the side of the cliff. I've been there several times and its always different.

Balls falls is a fairly easy hike with one small steep slope on the way to the upper falls, but it's worth the 15 minute walk from the parking lot. Another fifteen minutes and you're at the lower falls and the old town buildings. The...More

Just parking. But there's no where else to park. $7, not too badly prices so long as you go to the upper and lower falls and take in all of the historical areas, and the little information centre. Morningstar Mill is free... More

As far as I know. Probably not in the Conservation Authority buildings, though.
