The hike to see the waterfalls was beautiful. Great place to make memories with family and friends. There is a gift shop and a snack bar.

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.
Absolute amazing sight of the falls from the boardwalk. I took the yellow trail and completed the walk in an hour. There are different trails to pick your route and explore the area but be mindful or their hours of operation. Fall weekend was busy so I recommend going earlier in the day. Some views were really breathtaking. I wish they had more food options in the store but otherwise it was a superb place to visit.
It’s been decades (literally) since I walked the falls at Bushkill. What a pleasant surprise! The campus is clean, well maintained and easily accessible. The trails are clearly marked and the map they give you is easy to read. It’s completely pet friendly; in fact, my pups and I walked the longest trail (red) and had a fantastic time. Some of the steps and walkways are narrow- so make sure your furry friends are leashed and can stay close and to the side. People are generally kind and considerate, but many hikers would rather keep hiking than stop for a quick pet or sniff, which is completely understandable. There are smaller loops that would be great for pets who might not enjoy a long walk through some tough terrain. There are also snack bars, a mini food stand, ice cream store, souvenir shop and large restrooms. (Pets are not allowed in many of the indoor places.) Overall, this was the best $15 I’ve spent in a very long time. (Parking is free!)
Second time here and it's even better. Best time is to go during the fall. All the colors look amazing. Longest trail here is around 2 hours or so and they have multiple trails. The falls close at 5 so keep that in mind if you want to see everything. The trails have different difficulties and they are easy to follow. Many different places to take wonderful pictures and it's not too crowded. Parking might be tricky when it gets busy since it's not really big. We paid $15 each (adult) during weekday. They give you a trail map when you go in. I highly recommend it but not too much for small kids because there's alot of stairs. You'll most likely end up carrying them.
The falls were beautiful in the fall season. It was very crowded yet everyone was courteous to each other. We went to all of the falls and they are all distinctly wonderful. The boardwalk and stairs are maintained very well, although they can be a little slippery. But they do make it accessible for the average person to see everything in the gorge.
