My wife and I visited Bushkill falls this summer because we love waterfalls. We've been to Rickets Glen and a few other waterfall sites in the PA mountains but never to Bushkill falls. We did the longest and hardest of the trails and it wasn't bad, just make sure you have proper walking apparel and try and pick a day... More

We enjoyed the hike, although I feel charging the same price for the 15 minute hike as for the hour hike is a bit excessive. We did enjoy wandering through the little shops. The mining for gems was fun and I had a lot of them in my small bag.

Obviously you want to go on a sunny day, not too hot. But for an energetic hike through nature, you can't beat this. Wear good sneakers, dress comfortably and take a bottle of water.

My husband and I visited Bushkill Falls for the first time, and were very glad we made it our destination. We decided to follow the "Red Trail," the longest, at 2 miles. Fortunately, the lady who sold us our tickets, recommended that when we enter the trail area, we should go to the right to start. This was a great... More

I recently read reviews that some families are complaining of the somewhat high admission price. I believe the fee is around $14.50 for adults. However, the park was very clean and I didn't see any garbage at all during yesterday's Sunday trip. It was a very peaceful and beautiful walk around the main waterfall. First, we walked the yellow trail... More

Set out to see the fall foliage and decided to travel to Bushkill Falls. It was a great choice. While privately owned, the grounds are immaculately kept. The admission fee others complain about is well worth the upkeep of the trails, steps and pathways. There are several trails with well signed difficulty. I will say the yellow trail does have...

This attraction is well worth the 2-3 hours of time and the entry fee. We were warned by locals to avoid the weekends because of the crowds on the wooden walkways that traverse through the park. We went on a cloudy weekday afternoon with a threat of rain. It was idyllic! We only encountered three other couples in the two... More

The falls at Bushkill were very nice and the trails were all in excellent shape. Very well maintained, but it should be for the ticket price. The water flow was not heavy, so I don't know how they could compare it to Niagra Falls. But it was a lovely fall hike . Not too strenuous, even the red trail.

It is a must see if you are visiting the Poconos. The trails are a not to aggressive and you can choose how far you want to walk by selecting which of the falls you want to see. Facilities were taken care and they had restrooms and refreshments so you could spend the day there if you wanted to
