This is an easy hike in eastern Pennsylvania with trails of varying lengths, bringing you to views of 8 different waterfalls.

Bushkill Falls offers visitors a choice of 4 different trails to explore. All trails are very well maintained, making this trip safe for the whole family.

The most rewarding trail is the Red Trail. This route brings you to all 8 of Bushkill's waterfalls. Taking the trail counter-clockwise, you will come across Pennell Falls in less than 1/4 mile. The trail continues to loop around and hit 6 more waterfalls, 2 of my favorites being Bridesmaid's Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. Finally, at the end of the loop you will hit the 8th and most spectacular waterfall; Main Falls.

At the trailhead there is a souvenir/snack building in case you are hungry or care to bring home a trinket.

Touristy, but worth a visit

I debated visiting Bushkill Falls at all because I had heard that it was very touristy. Accept the fact that it's touristy and go; it's worth a visit. The waterfalls are gorgeous, and the trails are very well maintained. I took the red trail, and once I got away from the entrance to the park it wasn't crowded at all.

Calling all Waterfall lovers!

Chose the red trail so we could see all the waterfalls. Very impressed with the falls and grounds. The fee is reasonable yet it can be busy. Worth the visit for sure.

Beautiful Location!

Bushkill has some beautiful waterfalls & very well maintained trails & walkways. Although it's a beautiful outdoor location, it is also a tourist location and is very crowded. That & the fee is why it is 4 stars

Hike to Buttermilk Falls

The parking lot is a big dirt lot, so if it's raining or has rained, be prepared. The immediate falls are located mere steps from the parking lot, so on holiday weekends, be prepared for crowds.
