We have done the red hike twice during previous family vacations to the pocono area. Nice terrain with a great amount of steps as wells. The view of the many falls are beautiful. Bring a camera as you will want to capture the moment. Picnic friendly as a covered area is located at the main entrance

I was here as a kid, again 15 years ago and then just recently and have always loved it. There are different trails you can follow depending on what you want to see and they are all clearly marked. You can take your time and just enjoy the beauty of this area at your own pace.

My partner, dog, and I stopped and hiked down and then had lunch at one of the many picnic tables. Really fun time! Be prepared for steps and humidity... Very crowded on Labor Day weekend but still worth the stop. The wildlife area at the entrance could use a little dusting and updating. The staff was 50/50... Some seemed to... More

This series of falls is privately owned and is not part of the National Park system located down the street. This may limit the care of the paths and handrails, but it does not diminish the beauty of the series of falls known as Bushkill Falls. The trails ranged in difficulty from moderate to challenging. Once you move to the... More

We have two small children,5 years old and1 1/2 year old. They both loved it. You can not take strollers in because there are lots of stairs. We had to carry the youngest most of the way but we were in the park for 3 plus hours and not one bit of crying. Buy the official map there is a... More

Went to Bushkill falls for a day trip along with my family. We chose the longest trial and every attraction was worth the money. For the Ticket price, if the trails are maintained properly with probably well maintained steps it will get 5 stars. Overall a very good one day trip from NJ.

Yes there is an entrance fee, but the walkways and stairs (lots of them!) are well maintained and marked. I would go again if in that area.

We are seniors who took a 13 year old grandson to Bushkill Falls for a hike. We took the longest hike around (2 hours or so)- we all loved the beautiful falls and took many photos.

Lots to see and do. Beautiful falls if you're in shape or not. Something for anyone to see. Small trails on up to in shape hikers to see more. Shops, food, bathrooms, paddle boats, hiking and falls. Really liked it.
