Gorgeous but crowded

It's a lovely hike and very family friendly. Paths are narrow and the trails become congested very quickly. Took away from the feeling of quiet and solitude.

We did the long hike around all falls it was beautiful and not to difficult. Come midweek to avoid crowds or hike all the way around as the crowd at the main falls will disperse at midday. Lots of trees on hike provided shade from the sun.

I loved Bushkill falls as a kid, but these days the crowds and the steep entrance fee are enough to make on search for other ideas. If you really want to experience Bushkill Falls without the steep fees go visit one of the many waterfalls in the Delaware Water Gap recreation area - the closest being Dingamns Falls. That being...

Bushkill falls Was an amazing thing to do with the family. The trails were so much fun. We joked, laughed and the cold didn't seem to bother us. I would highly recommend this beautiful natural hiking experience to adults and children over 5.

Beautiful hike and well worth the admission as the operators have put a lot of work into the many walkways that provide great views of the waterfalls. A variety of hiking options from short to longer hikes.

We heard about this place because the advertising compares this location with the Niagara Falls There are several small falls, and there are four trails that you can follow according to your physical strength or ability to walk. There is the red trail, yellow trail, blue trail and green trail. Each of the trails have a difficult level or not... More

First visit to Bushkill and had a great gime. Falls are very impressive even when not at their fullest. Took the red trail for the long hike and took our time making the trek. Lots of great spots to see and we all had fun crossing back and forth across the river. Luckily we brought lunch as all of the... More

We came here in later autumn. The leaves already turned into multicolored. Maybe the season changed, the water flows is going low. But I still believe it's the best time for Bushkill. There's many paths that you can choose. For the longest one took me about 2 hours to walked. I suggested you to bring your own food. Cause after... More

My boyfriend and I visited bushkill falls last week, weather was 66-68 degrees. We loved it. We did the 'red trail' for "avid hikers." I figured, we are in our late 20s and over all healthy so we should have no problem, but boy was it a work out! It took us a little over 2 hours with multiple stops... More

Must make a stop of u r an outdoor person. Plenty of parking, nice restaurant, souvenir shop, clean restrooms. Entry fee of $15 p.p. drink plenty of water before starting your walk, different types listed in the brochures. Took the one that covers all the waterfalls. .carry your camera. .
