This is a very easy hike for the whole family! The trails are well maintained; the Rangers are very helpful. Many informational signs make this hike very educational.

Beautiful, mind-blowing, a feast for the eyes, unique and serene. One waterfall after the other tumbling down - awesome display of nature at this wonderful spot. A good work-out if you do all the climbs down and then up again but surely worthwhile.

Let me begin by saying that I've lived in Eastern PA for 17 years, and this is the first - and only - time that I'll visit Bushkill. Don't get me wrong, the park has plenty of beauty, and is well maintained, but given all...More

Perfecr hike. Trails are outlined so you know what you are getting into. Cost is reasonable too. Love the walkways over under and around the many waterfalls.

Bushkill Falls is a series of waterfalls. Steps follow the river and offer great views to all the falls. Once you get to the bottom of the falls, you need to hike back up to the top. You can either backtrack on the trail you...More

We took the longest red trail thinking 2 miles is really not that far. Even though the sign says it's for real hiker, but the hike is not really difficult. They've built stairs for all difficult climb, so unless stairs are challenging for you, you...More

Great place to visit anytime. Enjoyed the turning leaves and the brisk cool temps. Good walking trails, but many stairs to handle to complete three out of the four trails. It magnifies Pennsylvania beauty anytime of the year.

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 from the bathrooms. An actual receipt is necessary in...More

It can be slippery when wet so I would think it wouldn’t be safe in snow and/or ice. There are a lot of stairs and uneven ground areas.
