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.

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!

This attraction was better than people say online, we have been hiking in many places and the hike and scenery here were the perfect blend of strenuous and safe, with pleasant surroundings, certainly worth the 12.50 pp entrance fee. We knew not to expect Niagra but it was a nice morning excursion.
