Nestled within the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, Bushkill Falls features a series of eight different waterfalls and an assortment of nature trails. You can wander across wooden bridges over roaring rivers as you discover each waterfall. Keep an eye out for the tallest, which plunges 30 m (100 ft). The trails provide different levels of difficulty, so for longer ones be sure to wear proper footwear. However, viewpoint over the biggest of the waterfalls is a relatively easy walk.

Beautiful, mind-blowing, a feast for the eyes, unique and serene. One waterfall after the other tumbling down - awesome display of nature at this wonderful spot. A good work-out if you do all the clim... more »
This was a great family stop. The main trail was very easy to follow and was not too difficult. There were more difficult routes to follow if you wanted to get a better view, but they were optional. There is a lot to see here. The scenery was beautiful and the falls were great. We were here in August, so the water was a bit low, but it was still fun. Must be awesome in the winter, but not sure if its open then. Definitely worth a visit.
Excellent place for a family hike. There are marked trails that pass right next to a gorgeous falls! Many photo opportunities. The trail covers a few other smaller falls as well. There are trails of different lengths and difficulty levels, mainly varying in distance and time you want to spend. Trails are well marked and safe for kids. This can be an excellent day trip in the Poconos area.
This is one of the best parks I've ever been to. It is well maintained, all the paths are clear and wooden bridges and steps are firm and in good condition. There are four routes designed for all ages and abilities. You can see main falls from each side and angle from the top and the bottom. If you have time I would recommend to get at least blue path as it reveals few more big and beautiful falls. We were able to complete it even with one year old son. But the best choice is the longest red path since it will show you the cascade of few wonderful falls on the other side of the park. Be aware the parking is too small for bright and hot days, try to arrive in the morning.
Don't be intimidated by the red trail. If you have the whole day to take your time, it's worth seeing all the extra falls. Bring your best camera and your dog and make sure you don't rush it! It's worth taking your time and capturing the lighting and the backgrounds that you can't get anywhere else. You end up traveling down numerous different trails if you go with your own flow and that's your best bet for the $15 dollars it costs you to have entire day spent in paradise
Nice area to hike! They have nice waterfalls! The gift shops! The mini golf was sketchy. The carpet on the course was ripped. Overall, it's a nice little area. Very family oriented. Parking was a little difficult to find
