2 Miles Round Trip - Loop Trail

Bushkill Falls Parking Area - Search Nearby - Added by Tyler Cranden

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.

Hike

Amazing waterfalls, but incredibly busy with a fee to enter the park

Bushkill Falls

It's beautiful! I did this hike with my two children (5 and 2 years old) Some parts are rocky but it's a pretty easy 2 1/2 mile hike. It's perfect for an easy/fun family hike

One of PA's Great Treasures

I grew up near Bushkill Falls so I went often as a kid, and loved it every time. It's a beautiful place for photography (especially in the fall) and the main falls are 100 feet tall, making it one of the tallest waterfalls in the state. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because this land is privately owned and they charge you a whopping $13.50 to see it. This place should be a state park, and free to all.
