The whole family loves hiking at Bushkill Falls. Not only is it great exercise (and the kids don't even realize they are exercising) but the scenery is unbelievable! Bring your cameras because there are plenty of great photo opportunities. Lots of walking, lots of steps and tons of fun!

I don't know about most days but the day we went, it was waaaaaay to crowded. The falls were beautiful but, again, too many people to really enjoy them.

Great hiking trail with beautiful waterfalls along the way. Safe walking with boarded trails and rails.

It was a great time to hike in October, I suppose. It was not too hot. However, it was a little bit slippery because of the rain the day before. But we enjoyed very much. We spent like couple hours hiking and enjoying the view of the falls. The foliage was so beautiful.

Bushkill Falls is a great way to spend the day in the springtime. It's best to go in the early to mid-spring due to the melt-off of the winter snow. All the falls will be quite active and flowing. Remember to bring a bottle of drinking water with you as there are several trails that are quite physically challenging even... More

I stopped here on a return trip from Florida. I was looking for a place to stop and stretch my legs and kill an hour or so. I came across this place by accident (and a great accident it was). I was taking the back road towards my next destination, which I do often, as you can tell by my... More

The falls and the trails are beautiful and well maintained. This place is expensive as it is privately owned.

A family w/ 5yo child can easily go through the longest loop in approx. 2h. Although there are signs warning of difficulty the trail was easy and should not be a problem for anybody (I am overweight, haven't been in mountains since 2005). Good way to spend time with family on Sunday.

We did one of the easier trails because neither one of us wore the right shoes. The place is beautiful! There are many photo ops so be prepared to stop a lot. You could spend an hour here or all day depending on your mood and trail you pick. The only negative for us that day was the dreary weather... More
