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

I was a bit concerned about traffic and road conditions but there was no problem at all. The waterfalls were beautiful and the hike was really good exercise. The steps and paths are well maintained, hence the admission charge which was not too steep. If you prefer free admission and a less challenging hike (an almost flat walk on a... More

Even though it took us an hour to drive to Bushkill Falls, it was well worth it! I wasn't planning to do the longest trail, but the kids wanted to see all 8 waterfalls. It was amazing to me the way there were steps and paths built all around the area that made navigating so much easier. The waterfalls were... More

The falls are wonderful. We did the most common hike and all of the ups and downs got us very tired, but we had a wonderful time there.

My perception of this might be colored by the fact that I visited on a holiday weekend- the crowds were wall to wall! But I do feel that the signage on the pathways should be better posted. We arrived around 5pm and the place was swarming. Parking had overflowed onto the road, but being so late in the day we... More

We went to Bushkill Falls on July 5th, I will suggest not to go there during major holiday, it was bumper to bumper when we near the site, very difficult to find parking (spend over 1/2 hour try to find parking space). we had heavy rain few days before our trip, so water falls were heavy, strong and beautiful. But... More
