Busk Kill Falls is beautiful, has great trails, bridges, Water Falls, is Scenic, (birds and other wild life). It is a safe venue, for tourist and locals, to commune with nature. Aramark has done a great job maintaining the Park all year round including the off closed season November to April. The park takes a great beating when it is... More

Take water, a camera, comfortable shoes and take it all in. A great hike through some very picturesque sites. Be sure to take your time and try all the trails if you have time. The trails are well marked but be sure to get there early as crowds pick up in the afternoon.

Great place for a day trip in the Poconos. The falls and grounds are beautiful and I loved that there were several different trails to follow based on length/hiking experience. You could spend an hour or the whole day there, depending on how much you wanted to do and see. There are paddleboats for rent and picnic areas. Bushkill Falls... More

Magnificent falls..high and sparkling in the autumn sun. This can be a physical experience, but it also has a less strenuous possibility. The area is large enough that you can feel alone and away-from-it-all even on a busy day. Surprisingly uncommercial for a commercial enterprise.

Seeing Bushkill Falls for the first time is amazing. This is one of the places I bring visitors to the Poconos area.

First time at Bushkill Falls for the family and definitely not the last. We're already thinkin about goin back with a big group. Gorgeous natural place- reminds you of a Disney World adventure set but this is the real deal! Kids of all ages will love it as will couples. Very friendly staff as well.

Spent the day hiking with my son and family. My grandsons were 9 and 6; they loved every minute! It was a beautiful day; and I was amazed at how easy the hike was, and how well kept the grounds were. The walkways and stairways are very accessible, and very well built and maintained. The different level hiking trails were... More

The falls were spectacular, the hike was great. Love this place. We were glad there were refreshments, food, souvenirs available as many places close those things after Labor Day.

This is how it's billed. In my estimation it doesn't even come close to Niagara. However, it is in a forest setting and quite beautiful. There are several hiking trails from the top of the falls to the bottom which are very well kept. Plenty of benches along the way to stop and rest. There is a charge but worth... More
