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!

Being born and raised, back in the day, about 3 miles from Bushkill Falls, it was my first job and spent many weekends riding my bike to and from this beauty.

There are different routes you an take visiting different falls. We were with young children so we did the easiest route and enjoyed it tremendously.

was a wonderful day trip, we walked with all the kids, they all loved it, some parts were boring but all around was nice. It is a lot of walking only do it if all are able to walk. May be easier to do it backwards. I do recommend it

Busk Kill Falls is beautiful, has great trails, bridges, Water Falls, is Scenic, (birds and other wild life). It is a safe venue, for tourist and locals, to commune with nature. Aramark has done a great job maintaining the Park all year round including the off closed season November to April. The park takes a great beating when it is... More

Take water, a camera, comfortable shoes and take it all in. A great hike through some very picturesque sites. Be sure to take your time and try all the trails if you have time. The trails are well marked but be sure to get there early as crowds pick up in the afternoon.
