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). 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.

  • I have always loved this place, but it's been awhile since I was here. We decided to take a day trip to the poconos and Bushkill was the main attraction on my itinerary. It was an unbelievably beautif...  more »

  • Pretty falls, and beautiful foliage. But be careful if you want to use the restrooms after entering. Although you have a ticket and the trail map they hand you, it's not enough to exit and re-enter fr...  more »

  • Beautiful scenery! We had a few issues though with staying on the trail we were on. That's not too big of a deal though because you can't get lost. I understand that it's privately owned so they need to charge so they can keep up with it. I do wish it was a little less pricey. There's a playground for kids which is nice. Also a miners maze you can do and panning for rocks/jewels. However each of those cost more money. The bathrooms are clean, which is always nice!
  • Very scenic place. Has at least 3 major hike trails to check out different views of the waterfalls. Each trail is beautifully color coded with either red or yellow or green metal plates and patches to indicate the difficulty level of the hike. All trails have wooden stairs and are easy to navigate. The entrance has designated grilling areas, so do plan on carrying any food you wish to grill. Overall, Bushkill falls is a nice scenic destination for a weekend family outing!
  • It's absolutely beautiful here. The trails are marked very well. Trails are all wooden bridge or stairs making the hike easy. One area is a trail through the woods is not but it's flat and only a little bit rocky in some areas, but nothing that is difficult to walk through. Some areas on the red trail could be difficult for some people as it gets somewhat steep at points. They have easy and moderate trails that all include beautiful views for everyone. All waterfalls are able to be seen on the red trail which takes approximately 2 hours. The main falls are breathtaking. It's worth every bit of the $15, one of the most beautiful places in PA!
  • Absolutely loved this park. There are number of activities to checkout and it is family friendly. My favorite was climbing the Red Trail which allows for pit stops to see the various falls. There are 8 in total which are stunning. The trail is a little hard but if you take your time then anyone can do it. Please note, there is an entrance fee to do the trails so you can see the falls.
  • The trails (even the hard ones) were all very cut out. Most of the climbs were just wooden stairs built into a slope. They have signs and ropes keeping you from many good places. I just wish that the falls were more accessible.
