Several reviewers questioned the cost since there are other falls to visit that do not cost. I disagree! Well worth the cost to see such spectacular outdoors. We took the long walk and thoroughly enjoyed the sites and the walk. Highly recommend.

My 6yr. Old son and I went on the 2mile hike around the falls. (I would suggest to make sure you bring water/snacks) lot of going up steps and walking on rocky paths. If my so was any younger I wouldn't have taken him because he would have been complaining, but the weather was perfect (nice cool breeze) and the... More

We went on a Friday afternoon and the line for tickets was relatively long. So, plan ahead and get your tickets online! Don't be afraid of the "red course" - it's not too hard and totally worth the awesome views!

We were on the fence about visiting Bushkill Falls or 7 Tubs, and we went with Bushkill. What. An. Amazing. Experience! Absolutely relaxing and worth the trip. The waterfall views were beautiful and the trails were clearly labeled, so no need to spend $3 on a map, unless you like to keep memories for scrap booking like me! Definitely going... More

This is a great place. You must hike some, but it is well worth it. Much is level, but getting up to the falls takes some stairs. the view is worth it. We even saw a black bear on the the (thankfully) other side of the creek on the way down. It is a bit of a drive, but a... More

If you are in the area, you must stop here. I was worried about walking thru the trails. But there are steps and handrails throughout the different trails. We left the shorter trail in order to get closer to the falls. Watch out ... you may get a little mist on you when you're at the bottom. Well worth it.

I have been three times at different times of the year and its always awesome! We did the most difficult trail, the red and it was great. Be prepared to get a work out!

My husband and I went hiking here on our vacation and it was absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! We took many pictures $14.25 per person to enter, but worth it. Both easy and challenging paths to choose from. Other activities to do while on the property, but were closed during our visit in April (may be open in summer months).

We went here with the family today. They have a nice area for picnics, and a gift shop, snack shop, maze, sluice mining, sweet shop, museum and more. Unfortunately much of the stuff was closed since it is still early in the season. All of that stuff is available near the parking area before you pay to get in, though... More

Definitely my highlight of my 3 day trip to the Poconos. They had 4 trails for different exertion levels so they can accommodate all levels of physical fitness. Falls were incredible.
