Hiking in Ball’s Falls Conservation Area near Jordan, Ontario. A great sunny day and hovering around freezing point so very little mud. A waterfall at either end of the path means double your waterfall fix.
Ball’s Falls is part of the Twenty Mile Creek and is protected by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority. The land was once owned by the Ball Family who operated a set of mills powered by the water flow and began the development of the village of Glen Elgin. Sadly, it didn’t last due to railways and waterways that were more accessible in nearby towns and Glen Elgin all but dissolved in the late 1950’s.
The old Ball Family home still stands on the nearby heritage area along with a Grist Mill, a Lime Kiln, a Church, a Blacksmiths and other village buildings
