Bushkill Falls, Often referred to as the "Niagara of Pennsylvania," is a series of eight waterfalls  and is one of Pennsylvania's most scenic attractions.  It is nestled in the wooded Pocono Mountains and is accessible through hiking trails.  This picturesque area is most impressive with views of the waterfalls and wooded areas.

Bushkill Falls provides people of all ages  with an  opportunity to experience the beauty of Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains.   A variety of trails and bridges provide you with numerous views of all eight waterfalls.  There are 4 trails and each varies in length and difficulty. To give an example the green trail takes about 15 minutes to walk while the red trail is almost 2 miles will take about 2 hours and you will see all 8 falls.  It is however only a short distance to viewing the towering 100 ft Main Falls from the primary observation deck. 

The trails are designed to appeal to different skill levels and ages.  The trails are well marked and they are kept in good condition. There are however many steep stairs, and bridges especially around the falls. There are many benches on the trails for those who need to rest.  The shorter trails are suggested for those hiking with small children while longer trails would be more intermediate level and better for older children.

If you are concerned about your abilities or hiking with small children then talk to them and they will  advise as to the trail that best suits you.  No matter which trail you choose you will enjoy the natural mountain beauty.

 

At Bushkill Falls there's plenty for the entire family to see and do!

 

 

Make sure you wear comfortable sneakers or hiking boots to walk the natural pathways.  Don't forget your camera and/or video camera you will want pictures of the beautiful scenery.  You might also want to consider binoculars.

Note that no food or drinks (other than water) are permitted on the trails.  So plan your lunch accordingly.  There are many locations including pavilions and groves with open grills to have a picnic.

There is ample free parking.

Be sure to investigate the Pennsylvania Wildlife Museum, located at the entrance of Bushkill Falls, which features fascinating displays about the area's indigenous wildlife and/or the Native American Exhibit.  You can also fish Twin Lakes, take a paddle-boat rides, enjoy a round of miniature golf or have the kids go mining for gems at The Bushkill Falls Mining Co.

Be sure to stop in one of the variety of gift shops to get an Adventure Map for the kids. It keeps them interested in their surroundings because as they pass landmarks on the trail that are marked on the map they can punch them out on their card.  If you are hungry stop at the Fudge Kitchen, snack bar or Ice Cream Shop.

Rates vary based on age.  Group rates are available so call for details.  Click this link for admission rates: Bushkill Rates
