Well worth a visit... Great place for friends, families, adults and children alike! The waterfalls are stunning and there's multiple choices for your hike... Ranging from an easy fifteen minute hike to a two and a half hour hike route! Had so much fun and I would love to return soon! Would be stunning in the fall!

This is my 3rd time going to Bushkill Falls, the previous times I went I was either a young child or in much better shape. This time we showed up and it was insanely packed. The line was literally through the entire parking lot at noon. It moved quickly though and by the time we were in there was no... More

This was a great local day trip and a great nature site it in the Pocono area. The falls are not very large, but the walk through the woods is really pretty. There are several trail options, the 30 min. trail is the most popular. Make sure you bring a camera as there are some great nature shoots to be... More

We are two senior "couch potatoes" who thoroughly enjoyed the park's toughest 2 mile trail ("for avid hikers"). We were so glad we took the ticket agent's advice to follow the red trail in a counter clockwise direction rather than in a clockwise direction. It was a delightful walk, complete with a symphony of beautiful sounds from the babbling Little... More

Falls are nice but they charge $12.50 admission fees. We visited Bushkill Falls in May and it was too crowded, we had to wait in line for more than 40 minutes just to buy the tickets. Trails and falls were beautiful but there were too many people to enjoy the nature.

Be in good physical condition to do this trip. There is a lot of walking up and down steep terrain and lots of stairs. If you don't have a problem with hiking then you will enjoy the beautiful views of the waterfalls and wooded nature trails. Bring your best camera for great pictures of nature at it's finest. Best to... More

The park is filled with boardwalk trails that lead you past attractions, but can become congested at times. I recommend hiking in the adjacent Delaware Water Gap where you can visit the 2 tallest waterfalls in the state of Pennsylvania. There are many miles of trail to explore within the Delaware Water Gap at no cost.

The trail was blocked off. It was a great view and a fun hike for the day. The waterfall had a great view but the trails were so narrow and blocked off there was a lot of foot traffic.

I loved the park, it was so beautiful and peaceful. We did the yellow trail. It was about 45 minutes. We took a lot of pictures. We are planning to go back in the fall to see the leaves change color.
