“Beautiful place, difficult with babies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We loved the falls and the other on-site activities. My eleven year old son went fishing for the first time and actually caught a small bass.
The hiking is very difficult with babies and we were unable to see as much of the falls as we would have liked.

“Easy access for those with limited walking ability”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

I went on the yellow trail to view Bushkill falls and it was at times rough because I have a bad back and legs but the hand rails and wooden walking areas made it much easier. I would not have been able to go if not for those. The falls were beautiful and I was so thankful that I could share this with my daughter. I can see why there is a fee since so much work was put into building the stairs, walkways etc. It was well worth the money to be able to see them.

“Lovely wooden bridges, great hide outs for the summer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Visited the falls about two weeks ago. The light fog and rain adds a little mysteries to the falls and bridges.

This place is great for a 1 day summer trip. There are several trails. The longest, supposed to be the most difficult one is about 1 hour and a half. (They marked it as 2 hour trail and only recommend experienced hiker though.) You can different view along the trail. Fun for all family members. However, it might get a little slippery after rain. So walk slow~~ (ps, admission is $12.5 per person)

Also, if you have more time when visiting, you can find other attractions in the area, such as water tubing, kayaking, paint balls, shooting, horse riding, zip-line, water parks. You won't get bored!
