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.

  • Although calling it "the Niagra of the Poconos" is a stretch, this area contains beautiful water falls and hiking paths. I wouldn't recommend it for children who don't know enough not to run ahead too...  more »
  • A beautiful place to hike! Be prepared for uneven surfaces and area of incline. There a variety of trails that take you to beautiful waterfalls. Even on the "off season" the area became quite full by ...  more »

  • This place is great. I have been here many times, and nice view of falls on the trail. They have trail options for everyone from kids to elderly people. Always good to be near water and the sound of falls. Place is well maintained and clean.
  • Had a fabulous time. We brought our dog & he had a blast too. Red trail is a lot of stairs so if that is an issue be forewarned. We'll definitely be back.
  • Bushkill Falls turned out to be a great 1/2 day trip!! It's probably best to get there at 9am opening, and, if you can, go on a weekday. The 8 waterfalls were so amazing!! Bushkill Falls is absolutely wonderful. I haven't seen too many waterfalls in my life, and to see Bushkill Falls and all the other smaller falls throughout the hiking passage was beautiful. Bring a camera! I also recommend if you take the red trail, go counterclockwise as there is less stairs to walk up and more to walk down!!
  • Very nice serene beauty and very well maintained area , it is very good for hiking and watching various points of the fall. It is privately owned area but very well maintained ,it has a ticket of around 17$ but it is worth of the cost
  • A beautiful treasure hidden in the Poconos. It really is a must see! With multiple trails to choose from, you can take a leisurely hike and see the most beautiful waterfalls. A perfect place for photography. I have shot engagement here and they were a beautiful backdrop! There is an entrance fee, BUT if you are a resident of Monroe County just show your Driver's license and you get in free!!
