Bushkill Falls, PA

Photos from our trip to a nice nature trail.

Last Saturday, we went to Bushkill Falls, PA,
with our friends. Though we spent only 3 hours there, we liked it much more than Niagara Falls. Sure, the falls is smaller compared to Niagara, but the hike trails are very nice and you rarely feel the crowd.

I've 43 photos from our trip there.

We started from New Jersey at around 11am. Got there at around 2pm after a lunch break. Hiked around till 5pm and got back to New Jersey by 7:30pm.

Seldom have I had such fulfilling short trips.

  1. I truely enjoyed looking at the photo's you posted of your hike. It's too bad you didn't put anything but ME under your pictures or I could use your name, me. I hope to bring my family to the area this summer. Thanks again.

  4. Hi VS

    I am planning to go to Bushkill fall next week, could you tell me that how to go from route 78. How much you walk from the parking site to reach the fall? Thanks.

  5. My girfriend and I went to Bushkill falls thinking it was going to be a relaxing and enjoyalbe attraction. We were very wrong. The trails were rocky, slippery and extremely treacherous. My girlfriend tripped several times and I felt unsteady as well. The steps leading to each fall were rickety, slick, narrow, and were old looking and feeling. The railings were slimy and would do no good to hold onto if one felt unsteady. The slats between the rails were large enough for someone to fall through particularly a child. I was astounded by a sign that read "Limit 6 People" on a very flimsy looking bridge. I was blown away by the lack of supervision parents gave to their children as well as their pets. Trail markings were unclearly marked. No warning signs about treacherous paths or proper footwear were posted. The waterfalls were difficult to enjoy because we were nervous and scared at times. I hope routine safety checks are performed regularly on the pathways. In spite of the fact that we feared for our lives the falls were attractive. My silly girlfriend says they were breathtaking.

  6. Mike,
    I was just there this past weekend with 2 women and they are not big hikers. They had no complants. We walked it all! I guess you missed the other signs that warned people like you and your girlfreind that there are parts of the trial that might not be suted for meek people. Think about it, if you walk down into a canyon below a 100' falls, you have to walk up to get out of that canyon. But your girlfreind got it right, "They were breathtaking." Don't try walking into the PA Grand Canyon, that's a mile down from the ridge.
