I would have given this place 5 stars if it weren't for the crowds. (But hey, it's a "touristy" place.) I love that there are several different marked trails here based on their degree of difficulty. This allows everyone from advanced hikers to toddlers and...More

Tickets are 14.50 weekdays 16.50 weekends per person. Children under 2 are free but without a stroller or backpack child carrier it’s tough bringing young ones. We walked the yellow route to the red route with a 40 minute nap for our son in about...More

Beautiful trails. Easy hike. The steps and boardwalks are very sturdy and offer a great sense of security. Several different falls and they are all gorgeous!

We had been to Bushkill Falls several years ago and went recently with friends who had never been there. We all really enjoyed it. The trails are pretty easy to follow, the views are great (lots of picture-taking opportunities) and there are plenty of spots...More

One of my favorite hikes in spring , summer, or fall. If your zip code starts in 183 it will be free admission but if your from out of town it well worth the fee they charge.

It's a nice park with a few waterfalls and short hikes. The entrance fee is pricey. There is a small gift shop and a cafeteria. You can have a picnic by the ponds at the entrance to the complex. Again, it is nice but it...More

This attraction really stands out (not in a good way) because with all of the free national parks in the area, this one is privately owned and therefore has to charge a pretty steep admission in order to finance the maintenance of the trails and...More

There are several paths to choose. Some short, some longer. This was well worth the entrance fee. We got right down to the falls where the spray was coming off. It was very enjoyable. The employees were helpful and friendly.
