Bushkill Falls is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. My husband and I are in our early 60's and I have to walk with a cane because of my bad feet, but we were able to do the Red Trail and I'm so glad we did. The stairs ARE steep, but you can... More

This has been a well visited attraction for over 100 years and still going strong. The main falls and smaller ones have well maintained wooden walk ways and steps leading up, down , and around the falls. All the good views require at least substantial step climbing. The dining area, gift shop, Indian museum, ice cream parlor are all well... More

We visited this very nice attraction a couple of weeks ago. When we pulled into the park, I thought it was going to be a tourist trap, but once we paid our entrance fee and started our visit to the falls, we were impressed. If you've seen Niagra or the falls in Hawaii, this is not in the same league.... More

Bushkill Falls is a beautiful place to go to for the day. The falls are amazing. The cost is $14.99 per adult to get in. There are three different trails that you can take. I do not recommend this for anyone that has issues walking. There is a snack shop along with a gift shop.

This is a private hiking course in the middle of a public park. They charge to go, and it is worth paying $3 for the map so you don't get loss. We did the longest trail, the red one and were wiped when we finished. There was rocky terrain, many stairs, but the views were worth it. We got there... More

They bill the Bushkill Falls as the Niagra of Pennsylvania. It is a far cry , the falls are about 100 ft tall. The trails are have very beautiful scenery and trails are easy enough for young children, my 5 year old had no issue at all.

On a rare cool day this summer we decided to go to Bushkill Falls. There are 3 different routes/trails to hike with spectacular views of the falls. I must admit, while this really is no where near Niagara Falls in magnitude, it is beautiful. The hike is a bit strenuous for older people because of the many steps to climb... More

Not everyone will be able to walk the stairs, but it is beautiful there. They rate the difficulty of the trails and just about anyone will be able to do at least the easy trail, kids included. The views are beautiful. It can be a little crowded. Make sure you have drinks. The gift shop is great. There is a... More
