Totally enjoyed the day at Bushkill Falls. Arrived just when they opened and stayed to about noon. Very well maintained, wonderful natural scenery, very nice people and all in the woods out of the hot sun but with few if any bugs.

We went on a Sunday in September and got there around 10:30am. There was plenty of parking and the place was not yet crowded. We first did the family hike route through the falls and it was amazing. The kids enjoyed hiking the trails which took a little under an hour. There are other longer trails for older kids and... More

$13.50 to enter and hike. Hike consists of stairways with 6" high steps (they do warn you before you buy your ticket). Saw a lot of garbage on the trails and overflowing trash cans with 1/2 a can of trash outside the full can! Nothing special about the shops lining the parking area outside. Chairs and benches in shops area... More

Bushkill Falls is a lovely place to visit during the Fall or any season. I can't say that I think it is the "Niagra of Pennsylvania" but it certainly is beautiful. The park has different rates- 14.50 for adults, 13.50 for seniors, 8.50 for children and free for children under 3. I do think it is worth the cost. You... More

My wife and I went to the falls for a hiking day on our anniversary. Wasn't thrilled that they charged 14.50 per adult to hike. The falls were nice, the hiking was decent. The red trail was pretty tough but there are plenty of signs to warn you. The biggest issue we had was it is touristy. Costs for everything.... More

A lot of stairs and walking but worth it, just take your time. We took the medium trail (45 minutes) and the falls were fantastic and a nice walk in the woods.

The water falls are beautiful and great for family photos. The hike down is easy. Back up to entrance is difficult with small children, but do able. Brought my family for the first time and they loved the views. The older blonde cashier at the counter was extremely rude and annoyed that we asked a question when we arrived. We... More

We were driving from new York to Wisconsin and decoded to stop to stretch. It was definitely worth the money for the hours of hiking. It's beautiful.

We ended our week later nag trip to the poconos with a visit to the falls before heading to the airport. Was a good decision. Although I had been as a child 45+ years ago. I had forgotten how beautiful this was. We enjoyed the yellow popular trail. I think it would have been easier to go to the right... More

Walked for 2 hours the Red trail with fantastic views of 8 falls. Somewhat challenging but achievable for someone used to hiking moderate trails. Had great ice cream at end at Sugar Mountain Sweet Shop as a reward. Mini museum on history of Bushkill Falls interesting.
