Wow, all these times I have heard of this place...saw billboards...and pamphlets...etc... I never considered going. I thought it would be cheesy or touristy. And while we counted 7 different foreign languages, it didn't have a "touristy feel" - I thought wow how cool so many people come here from all over. The hike is really beautiful but has a... More

There are several trails in Bushkill. You should know that they range from easy to very difficult. I only recommend the red trail for people wearing hiking shoes or good sneakers. I do not recommend the red trail for young children, especially on a hot day. We have been going for years since we live locally. For those that live... More

I had gone there, a few years ago. Bushkill Falls was a beautiful and spiritual experience. Mini rainbows float across the wooden footpaths. I wanted to go walking the trails but hadn't the time. The gift shop was interesting as well; friendly merchants. I'd definitely go again with time and season provided.

When we were originally looking at the maps for Bushkill falls, we were worried about being on time for our next adventure, so we did the Yellow trail. The yellow trail is estimated at 1.5 hrs but we finished in about 30 minutes, and we regret not going on the red trail. Overall, the "trails" were very nice, mainly wood... More

I drove up to the Poconos on a spur of the moment idea. My friend bailed on me for a photography outing and I was still in the mood to go somewhere to get some good shots in and enjoy nature. It was one of the best decisions I made all summer. Since this was my first time going I... More

We arrived mid morning and spent the day hiking. There are easy trails for the Srs and inactive folks, intermediate and more extensive hikes for the athletic. The falls are lovely, trails we'll maintained and the a employees are exceptional!

There were four routes to choose from with different degrees of difficulty. We choose the next to the easiest one, the yellow trail, and being senior citizens I'm glad we did. There are some great spots to take photos and the falls were impressive but there were a lot of steps to navigate. The trails were well maintained though. Not... More

Bushkill Falls is the Niagara Falls of Pennsylvania. There is a small fee to get in but it is totally worth it. There are 7 waterfalls here and all of them are beautiful. For the past 2 years, i have been coming back to celebrate my birthdays here. There are also multiple different hiking trails to chose from. It is... More

This is well worth visiting. There's stairs and hiking trails and wooden bridges and incredible falls. Not for someone who can't walk easily. You can hike as much or as little as you like as the main falls are easily accessible and well worth seeing. The main entrance has lots of old fashioned activities for the whole family including a...
