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).

  • Beautiful. Be prepared for lots of steps. I think it was worth the entry price. We really enjoyed this. We came after a heavy rain so, parts of the trail had standing water. Wear good hiking boots...

  • Bushkill Falls, simply beautiful. I've visited so many times over the years. It does get crowded, especially on the weekends (more so during the summer)...parking pretty challenging too. If you're not patient, this would be a deterrent from ever wanting to visit again. Plan ahead, arrive early morning, or later in the afternoon. Check the operating hours, as they close the entrance to the Falls after a certain time (sometimes as early as 4pm/5pm, off season). There are trails, if you choose to venture out, beyond the Falls. Come prepared, dress accordingly (proper shoes), bring water, bug spray.. The entrance tickets a bit pricey (you can't enter without).. Bring your own snacks or lunch...or $$ to buy there. Overall a great place to visit - the views, scenery & falls are breathtaking. The park is well maintained.
  • My daughter and I absolutely loved it! We completed the whole trail in 2 hours and 10 including the many stops to admire the view, listen to the Falls and river’s current, admire nature and take pics. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes-hiking boots preferably, snacks and water if you are considering in doing the whole trail. We arrived around 1pm and it was busy but yet nice to walk and stop and admire the beauty of the Falls and trails. The paths are well maintained. There’s an entrance fee of 15 dollars weekdays, 18 on the weekends. There are a few concession stores and plenty of parking. People are friendly and will patiently wait during photo shoots. We really enjoyed it. Make sure to stop and take in the view. The long walk will definitely take a toll on your legs if you are not used to walking or hiking. Take your time. Definitely recommend.
