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.

Great place for a day trip in the Poconos. The falls and grounds are beautiful and I loved that there were several different trails to follow based on length/hiking experience. You could spend an hour or the whole day there, depending on how much you wanted to do and see. There are paddleboats for rent and picnic areas. Bushkill Falls... More

Magnificent falls..high and sparkling in the autumn sun. This can be a physical experience, but it also has a less strenuous possibility. The area is large enough that you can feel alone and away-from-it-all even on a busy day. Surprisingly uncommercial for a commercial enterprise.

Seeing Bushkill Falls for the first time is amazing. This is one of the places I bring visitors to the Poconos area.
