The red loop trail is the most advanced and longest of all the trails offered. It runs with the other, flat, easy terrain trails for a portion and then branches off into rougher, rocky terrain. This trail is highly trafficked and very touristy on weekends. This is not a trail for a hiker who wants her peace and quiet, but the falls and views are still spectacular.

Absolutely stunning bike trail, maybe the best in the region. Skirting golden fields with the ridges as backdrop, meandering through nature forest, enough good upheilland downhill to make for challenging moments, and of course the river!

We hiked this trail from Briscoe Mountain Road (small pull off area). This cut about 1 mile off of the hike, so it was a 2 mile hike. There is a nice overlook and the waterfall is quite nice.

Great trail and marked very well. No snakes but I did scare a small black bear. Be mindful of your surroundings

We come to PEEC park all the time and this is one of our favorite trails. The staff has done (and is doing) an amazing job cleaning all the trails from fallen trees, one area really shows the almost war-like devastation a Marsh 2018 nor’easter caused.

beautiful sights, extremely well maintained, if time had allowed we would have liked all the trails in one day! hiked with my 10 year old son, who had no issues with terrain.

on Bushkill Falls Red Trail

Incredibly crowded and cost $16.50 per adult to get in. However the falls along the red trail were beautiful

Not a fan of paying for a hikes but Worth the $16 if you love waterfalls. The trail is maintained and well marked and the waterfalls didn’t disappoint each one was spectacular. It took my family about 1 1/2 to complete. After we went to the Layton Hotel Tavern for a very yummy lunch.

Great hike. The loop has some ups and downs but through well shaded areas. About halfway, there is a staircase down to the waterfall. Definitely do that too and don’t get daunted by the stairs. When down at the waterfall, cross the stream by walking across the big tree log and then scramble up towards the waterfall for a bit. That was really fun too ! The walk back from the waterfall is nice. Some height gain but nothing too intense. At a fast clip, you should be able to complete this in well under 2 hours.

I made the poor choice to come here on Memorial Day afternoon and it was a total zoo, so beware that people who normally don't hike descend on this place. The parking lot area is full of ways to spend money (food, ice cream, gift shops, paddleboats in a little lake, other things kids like) and also has the only bathrooms in the whole place. Once you scan your ticket to go inside the gates, there is no re-entry and also no bathrooms or way to buy a cold drink, strangely. The trail map is pretty terrible in that it says the red trail is the only way to see all the waterfalls, but the red trail does not make a clean loop and instead twists back on itself and sometimes wanders away from the waterfalls entirely, so that is confusing. There is no one there to answer questions about the trail - in fact, I didn't see an employee once inside the gates, just about a thousand (not kidding) tourists. So it's a weird commodification of hiking they have going here. That said, the trails and bridges and boardwalks are well maintained. I did the loop pictured here (the widest circle on the map), plus the yellow trail that criss-crosses the bridges over the falls. From the entrance, I went counterclockwise (turned right, went all the way up, then across to the west on the blue trail), and all of that was fairly easy apart from a few stairs going up. From the top of the Bridal Veil Falls trail (the red-only, far west trail), it became a moderate trail with tons of stairs, rocky/rooty paths, and some mud. Then at the bottom of that trail, it became all boardwalks and bridges and stairs to get back to the entrance. Once again, try to go on a day that it won't be crowded. There were so many people, and a lot of them were (annoyingly) not following the posted rules. There were smokers, people who climbed over the railings to leave the designated paths, kids running up and down narrow stairs unattended by adults, and lots of people in the water. I brought my dog and he had a great time. There were lots of people with kids; I don't think I would bring a kid here that I had to carry - the stairs would make that a lot of work. But it would be a great place to bring a kid who could hike on her own to spend some energy.

I inadvertently got the impression from the "Tumbling Waters" trail name that this trail would follow along a nice little stream, but that is not the case. It's primarily through the woods. That said, it's a nicely maintained trail and the woods are pretty. We hiked clockwise for about 1 or 1.5 miles before I turned around, after realizing this was not what I had expected. I liked this trail fine, but preferred to skip to another trail that actually followed some water. Some gnat and mosquito bugs, but not terrible. Mostly shady.

Great trail - dog, kids and adults had a blast.

Be ready for some stairs but the waterfalls are spectacular. Bring the whole family like I did. Each waterfall was better then the previous one! Worth the money for such a well maintained trail!

Beautiful area. Fun walk/hike. Trail markers quite confusing and map kinda lame.

Not much of a hike. More like a walk on a very long wooden deck with a gazillion stairs. The waterfalls were nice but hard to enjoy with so many people around.

We didn’t actually hike this trail because I can’t imagine any 2 mile trail is worth $16.50 a person. Trail also doesn’t open until 9 am.

It is a gorgeous trail for hiking. I missed a bit on a wildlife, because this place is ennobled, and a lot of tourists on trail. Probably better time for visit the falls not on weekends. But nature is amazing!!! Also please pay attention, that’s entering not for free - $16.5 for adults.

Great ~3 mile loop trail - completed it in about 1.5 hours. It is worth doing the short off-shoot to see the waterfall. When we went there were still a few trees down around the falls, but still beautiful. Well marked. Few lookouts, benches, and an old stone fireplace randomly in the middle.

This was a nice and relaxing trail. There are some beautiful waterfalls to see.

Fist ride worth Kourt she killed it!!

Great hiking with water falls view, it’s easy and great work out, I love it

Really nice moderate trail. This trail offers everything. Ponds, river, waterfall, views, trails through forest and all nicely marked.

beautiful trail, marked very well and easy to navigate. Amazing view at the waterfall, steep climb after waterfalls but besides that very moderate hike. clean park and very informative with maps.

Nice loop. Has it all... streams, ponds, well-marked, lovely ecosystems enriched by interesting factoids with the trail guide. Spring rains made the falls all the more beautiful!

We hiked about half the trail. It's often very close to the road and one section of it, surprisingly, is a road. I was upset and embarrassed because there is no forewarning that there will suddenly be motorized vehicles on the trail. This trail would be much more suited to mountain biking than hiking.

hiking loved it!!
