About the Trail

Easy | Signed | Gently Sloping

Experience the magic of the Bruce Trail at Ball's Falls! At Ball's Falls Conservation Area you can explore the Twenty Valley and stroll through the early 19th Century heritage buildings, some of which date from the original settlement of the Niagara area.

From the Ball’s Falls Conservation Area Visitors Centre, walk down the path to the river. Cross the river (using the larger bridge) and turn left to pick up the white blazes (trail markers) on the main Bruce Trail. The Bruce Trail leads past several impressive historical buildings and then follows the edge of the steep valley created by Twenty Mile Creek. The Trail then winds its way down into the valley to reach the Creek. From here you can continue along the Creek through a lovely wooded valley, or retrace your steps back to the parking area.


Grab your hiking gear and come explore the Greenbelt's beautiful, protected countryside.
