I enjoyed this hike and would go again. lots of stairs!! If your knees can't handle stairs, this isn't the hike for you.

$14.50 to shuffle along with fat Trump voters. Literally operated by Aramark, complete with turnstiles. Great for families.

Walked the yellow to the red then followed the blue back with two children. Was not crowded and they do free tickets for military on mondays. Through July and August.

Definitely a waterfall attraction. Red trail will give you some, minimal solitude on this heavily trafficked tourist destination.

way too crowded, dirty water, too expensive. there are so many nicer trails throughout the delaware water gap and the surrounding areas that this one is definitely not worth it

The waterfalls are spectacular but it was so crowded that people literally kept bumping into me.

The much hyped Bushkill Falls. $14.50 for entry is a bit excessive in my opinion, it's a shame that this place is just outside the border of then DWG national park. There are a ton of people and again it feels like a tourist trap. Waiting in line to pay to hike seems so odd to me. Once inside you can see that the money goes to good use. The main falls is magnificent, the boardwalks and stairs make this a nice place for sure but there are so many people. Navigating them and waiting in line to see waterfalls and snap photos wasn't an annoyance. I took the full red trail which eventually leaves the boardwalks and a good amount of people behind. It feels like a real hike for a time but before long you're back to stairs and crowds. After gaining back all the elevation on the stairs red trail seemed to go two different ways as it hooked up with a blue route. It extended the hike a good deal and for a time I enjoyed this portion along the creek. Eventually you're back towards the entrance and crowds still pouring in and I just wanted to get out fast. I think it's something you gotta do once but this doesn't hold a candle to Ricketts Glen which is you know, free. Try to get there early or otherwise avoid the crowds going on a less crowded day.
