We had visited BK Park back in 2009. Awesome, but about a week or two too soon for fall colors. This time we went during peak colors and HOLY SMOKES! The photos are stunning. Be ready to hike, wear the right shoes, bring water on the trail, go slow, be careful, stay on the trail. There are 3 different trails,... More

Bushkill Falls is a very nice place to visit. They are several trails to follow to view the Falls, there is a time chart to let you know the average time to walk each trail.. You can take your family to spend an afternoon. They have a place to eat and mini-golf..

I visited in the spring with my 10year old grandson. I thought I was up to the most challenging trail.Not! The trails are mostly well groomed with wooden walkways and stairs. Lots and lots of stairs! The estimated time for this trail is 3 - 3.5 hours and we made it in 4. The waterfalls can't be beat.So beautiful! I... More

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.
