This hiking experience offers three levels of trails so one can find something they fell will meet their needs. I was there on one of the hottest days of the summer and chose the mid'level trail. There were plenty of places to stop, appreciate the beauty and rest! My seventy-two year old friend had no problems with the hike. It... More

Very nice place to hike and senic during the fall. Not too crowded, the trails were easy and maintained. There were 8 waterfalls, each different.

There is an admission fee to enter the park. But what lies ahead of you is Mother Nature at her best. With different trails and falls- hiking can range from mild to moderate intensity.

Went for a hike here in October and had a really good time. The trails are well maintained and not very challenging. The falls are well worth seeing and enjoying. It's a hike that pretty much anyone can do as there are different trails that vary from easy to lightly moderate.

Had a wonderful few days in a great creek side cabin. With two sets of grandparents, two parents, and our one year old and three year old grandkids, it was a perfect getaway, and enjoyed by all. Thank you to our host, Steve, who was easy to contact when we had questions. The only thing I could suggest is that... More

Me and two friends visited this place in October. And we really liked it. with good view of falls and nicely maintained trails along the water stream. For some reason the water was dark black which I particularly did not like. But it must be a really good place to visit in summer.

Some of the courses are relatively flat while others have many steps - ask the park rangers for advice!

We planned a trip to the Delaware Water Gap to go hiking but had no idea there was a place as beautiful as Bushkill Falls. There are several trails to choose from according to your hiking ability. The toughest one is the red trail which is for true hikers and, believe me, it is not for anyone who isn't a... More

It was everything I hoped it would be and more. We had a perfectly dismal day...sun tucked away behind the clouds...leaving nothing for natures purest colors to compete with. The threat of a storm was just enough to agitate the water, and the recent rain just enough to create quite the powerful display or rushing water. The wooden walkways hovered... More

Truly the Disney World of hiking. Since this is a private park, there is a charge. $13.50 per adult. Parking was free. I felt as though the price was well worth it. Bushkill was well-maintained. The steps, bridges, and paths were all in great shape-nothing rickety, nothing broken, no vandalism. The bathroom was clean and well-stocked. The admission fee is... More
