Hike to Bushkill Falls

2 miles  - Loop Trail

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.

Beautiful falls

Easy walk through the woods and on wood bridges/pathways for great views of waterfalls. Walk quietly through the woods and be on the look-out: you might be lucky enough to see some wildlife. We saw 2 fawns just off the trail when we went. Many people walked right by and never saw them! Only downfalls are the admission and number of people you are likely to come across.
