Bushkill Falls, Bushkill

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).

  • Great place to kill (pun intended) a couple of hours. The trails are clearly marked. The red trail can get steep at times and there are a ton of stairs so be ready to huff and puff if you are out...  more »

  • Nice trails, fairly clean with some litter. $70 entrance fee for four people. No discounts of any kind for military, etc. Recommend going early in the day during the week, was crowded on the weekend.....  more »

  • Had lots of fun!!! Recommend to purchase tickets online to avoid staying in the line. Well maintained. The place opens 9 am. Around 2pm there was so long line to get in. Good place to work out for couple, family and all generation.
  • We started with the yellow trail because we are not in great shape. Once we climbed the almost straight up stairs. We were completely out of breath. So we opted not to go up the additional steps and follow the exit sign. But we discovered that the red trail would be easier and we would be going down those stairs instead of going up. It led us along the creek on flat ground. And the stairs we did climb were not steep. Then while we were going down the steep stairs. I told the people who were out of breath it's easier going down. We all laughed. So we took the yellow to our left then took the red to our right. The views were great. Listening to the water running is very calming.
  • Beautiful. We saw the rainbow crossing the waterfall. It is well maintained and safe. You may have close contact with the nature. You can easily step aside of the creeks and feel the smooth and clear of the stream. Yellow trail is well balanced and recommended since you may have all of the nice scenery along your trail. The red trail is the longest but there are some very boring sections. The food prices are decent in the food court. The ticket is good for a whole day admission.
  • Beautiful falls. Very easy hike. Kid's can also join. There are wooden stairs for most of the falls along with proper navigation. Falls are not super big or the one where you can get weight but scenic
  • Fantastic scenery and hike. Nice, well maintained trails with stairs and decking to access many spectacular views of the various falls. The trails are a bit confusing, as the red trail requires you to loop back on itself to cover the whole trail. This place is great for kids with a lot of activities. Plan to get here early or you will have a hard time finding parking on a Saturday.
