    One of the most magical trails I have ever seen! Waterfalls galore, some in the "bridal veil" style, others in the "wedding cake" style, all stunning. Path hugs streambed, but gives you a thousand varied views as it climbs up and around. Surface is slick as it is all natural stone or steep rough cut stone steps, and was very wet yesterday. You definitely want to take your time and be careful especially going downhill -- but who wants to rush through so much beauty anyway? Besides waterfalls, thousands of mushrooms, an infinite variety of ferns, mosses, altogether magical! We did this hike on a weekday and it was not crowded at all. If you park up top, you can make this a 3.4 mi loop of the major falls (top of the lollipop shaped hike, omitting the 1.8 mi long stick), but we enjoyed the lower end. it is nice to see the stream quietly babbling before the bigger drama, and there are lots of huge old growth trees...not to mention a few extra waterfalls. I would rate this hike moderate rather than hard, because there is no rock scrambling, and path is clearly marked. However it is long with stretches of steep climbing, and the wet rock surfaces certainly demand attention. As the park signs say, repeatedly, appropriate footwear is a must.

    lovely walk, nothing dramatic, but handsome hemlocks, nice tree-framed lake views, thousands of mushrooms of all shapes and colors when we did this yesterday. Clear blazes on trail.

    Definitely go up Appalachian trail (white blazes) and down the fire road: steep and varied on the way up and wide woodsy on the way down. Note there is pretty constant road noise from I-80 below so don't expect a silent woodland hike. Mostly tree covered with a few open vistas of DWG and Mt Tammany. Small parking lot.

    Marin C reviewed Bushkill Falls Red and Blue Trail

    This is not a wilderness hike by any means, though the red and blue trails are quieter and more wooded than the center area. But it is magical nonetheless. The center is all rustic railed boardwalk and stairs skirting both sides of a descending sequence of waterfalls, with fern covered massive stone walls. Face it, no natural/undeveloped site would let you experience this safely, unless you had wings. They have run these boardwalks really smartly, allowing many angles of view. The red and blue trails are a bit more natural and less traveled. Altogether totally worth it- don't be put off by the admission fee- a treat for the senses.
