  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • This is one of the best natural places in the region. I really enjoyed the trails at this attraction. There are multiple water falls, scenic views, and trails. I found the trails to be well maintained​. If you want to hike after a rainy day, be advised that some spots of different trails can be muddy. It is possible to complete all trails in 3-4 hours. The red trail offer the best views with a challenging and memorable hike.
  • Went to Bushkill Falls for my birthday with my husband. Neither of us are in great shape but we were both still able to make the red trail. The yellow path is all nicely boarded making for an easy walk through the best of the falls. The red trail cuts back through the woods and gets pretty rocky. The stairs were the hardest part. There are a LOT of them but bridals veil falls are worth the trek. Going on a Wednesday afternoon there were very few other people there so we had plenty of time to take photos at each of the falls while enjoying the beautiful scenery.
