About this Waterfall

The "other" falls at Balls Falls Conservation Area is not as big as the main attraction, but is just as interesting. It also requires a 10-12 minute up-hill walk from the parking lot that filters out some of the daytrippers. A small amount of water penetrates into the jointed dolostone and appears out of the side of the gorge walls well beyond the falls. A walk upstream from the falls along the dry river bed is easy-going in late summer. If, of course, they haven't fenced it off to pedestrians. Can anyone tell me if you can still do this?
