This is private property and so they charge an admittance fee for the falls. Although it is relatively reasonable ($12.50 for adults I believe) there are free options like Dingman Falls that don't cost anything. Regardless of the cost, it is a lot of fun and they have some great trails to view the falls. We have heard in the... More

My husband and I were not expecting to have to pay to see a natural waterfall. That kinda bummed us out. But since we drove there we decided to fork over the $25 for the both of us. When you first walk to the waterfall it's very crowded, but the further you walk the less people you see. Since you... More

The red trail is awesome if you are up to it. I recommend going on a cool morning. There are no restrooms on the trail as I could see. There are maps so you can take parts of trails to see all of the falls. If you're not much of a walker/hiker. The biggest fall is the first so there... More

A trip to Milford, PA this summer was to include a trip to Bushkill Falls, however we never got there because of the shockingly poor directions given in the immediate vicinity. Bushkill Falls Rd is closed, at the junction with Milford Rd a detour is posted and you can see the road is partially blocked off. At this point you... More

We had a great day hiking the waterfalls and enjoying the shops. We chose the most difficult hike and it was long but really beautiful. The trails are very well marked and they have built rustic stairs to make it easier to climb up and down along the waterfalls. Wear sneakers (not flipflops) so you have good footing. I would... More

A nice quiet walk in the woods with a choice of trails from easy to difficult. Nice gift shops and reasonable fees for a privately owned property.

Got there early in the morning and hiked the falls before it got crowded. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and carry water with you if you're going on one of the longer hikes. Great day!!

A must see in person! Especially after heavy rain. Lots and lots of steps to climb so be prepared. My 5 year old even loved it!

It is a crowded attraction during the peak of summer but so beautiful you "forgive them". The place may make you feel like you are in some kind of wonderland. Nature at its best and lushest. This area has been called "The Niagara of Pennsylvania." It is a series of several waterfalls. There is an entrance fee but the parking... More
