My friend and I were looking for a hike mid-way between our houses and found this. It was a little pricey ($13.50), but the trails were well maintained and the bathrooms cleaned. You can't bring a picnic lunch because they want you to buy their food, but the hikes are long enough to really need a lunch. The map said... More

Went to Bushkill Falls (10 mins from our resort) on Sunday. Was the first warm day here (70F). They have three trails you can go on, depending on ability and time. With our 3 year old we went on the 45 minute walk, but it took about 70 minutes. Some sections are steep steps. Some spectacular views. They have a... More

It was so beautiful a site I will remember for the rest of my life and would love to come back to again. This place should be visited by anyone who is visiting the area

My 14 year old son and I visited the falls during our vacation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The trail we took was well marked and I really liked that there were four types of trails to choose from. My only complaint would be that on there website instead of just listing if the park is open the... More

Nice scenic view. Wear comfortable shoes a lot of walking to do. Some of the routes are about 45 minutes while others can be up to 3 hours.

We first visited on our honeymoon in 2005, such a beautiful place, had an amazing experience. Took our time to take in all the beauty and took lots of pictures. We enjoyed it so much that we took our two youngest kids back and are planning yet another trip soon. Pocono Mountains are awesome and this place takes our breath... More

We expected much more from the falls in terms of beauty and structure. in my opinion and seeing the greatest water falls in the world, this is nothing but an inclined stream of water down the mountain! It took us a while to reach the area which was well signalized and well kept, but this is not for someone who... More

Very underwhelming experience especially for the price. $25 for two people to gain entrance. We finished the red trail, the longest excursion in under 45 minutes. It's not that this isn't a cool outdoor place, but the trails are kind of boring and generic and the falls aren't really anything special. not much in the way of views either. I'm... More

Bushel Falls is a very beautiful place, lots of lush scenery and the hike is well worth it. The steps can be a little tricky to maneuver with very young kids, but they will enjoy the falls. The loop around isn't too long but can get a bit backed up on a hot summer day. I recommend going early morning... More

There were clearly constructed steps and bridges giving you the best views of the waterfall with easy access. We went right after a huge rain-storm so the steps were a little wet but it was still so beautiful!
