Short, easy hike, we did the blue and yellow trails with two 3.5 years old who were walking most of it. Lot’s of stairs. Nice views.

Get there early before the crowds of tour buses arrive. Followed the recommendation of doing the trail counter clock wise, and was delighted with the gorgeous views!

The falls were beautiful, especially the main falls. We didn't quite make it to all the other as the walkway tags were missing and got turned around a bit at apparently a crucial point. However the walkways appear well maintained, and if you get to the part that is on dirt it's quite beautiful. I thought the $15 might be a bit on the expensive side but we enjoyed it. Lots of steps...even on the 'popular' trail.

Didn’t initially like paying for this but was glad we did. Many waterfalls in a close proximity

A very well maintained hiking trail around the famous Bushkill Falls and gorges. The main red trail loop covers 7 of 8 falls. You can take a side loop to see the 8th, Pennell Falls.

Well maintained with incredible views! Very easy if youre comfortable with the stairs. The 2.5 red loop goes quickly. Expect to see a lot of people. Seems very odd to stand in line and pay a $14.50 entree fee and walk through turnstiles before a hike. Not my idea of hiking but i thoroughly enjoyed it. Stop here if youre ever in the area

Did the Red trail, recommend doing trail right to left as it's then mostly down hill with the steps after you hit the peak. Not happy about the added 2 bucks entry fee on the weekends, which I didn't read anywhere, but must say the $ does show in the great maintenance of the trails.
