A Visitor’s Guide to Pennsylvania’s Bushkill Falls
First and foremost, Bushkill Falls rests in a particularly jaw-dropping Pocono Mountain expanse near the sprawling Delaware Water Gap. Secondly, it’s only a six-mile drive from the award-winning Pocono Palace Resort, home to the world-famous (and newly-updated) Champagne Tower Suite. So, grab your best guy or gal, lace up your hiking boots, pack a picnic basket, and journey into the heart of the rolling Pocono Mountains for a once in a lifetime adventure!
The Niagara of Pennsylvania
Bushkill Falls opened “it’s doors” in 1904, much to the delight of Pennsylvanians and New Yorkers alike. It didn’t take long for visitors to label Bushkill Falls as the “Niagara of Pennsylvania.” While the two attractions don’t necessarily resemble each other in scale, travelers often exclaim that Bushkill’s eight waterfalls are too beautiful for words, much like Niagara. This 300-acre estate, despite seeing semi-constant foot traffic, remains as pristine as it did over 100 years ago, thanks to the hard work from generations of groundskeepers. Yes, the park does cost money, but that small fee helps preserve this glorious land.
Bushkill Falls Hiking Trails
Over the decades, Bushkill Falls has welcomed an array of on-site attractions into the already engrossing mix. When you’re not strolling, hand in hand, along one of the four beautiful Bushkill Falls trails, you can mine for gemstones, fish for brook trout, paddle onto Twin Lakes, and try some homemade fudge. We also recommend bringing along a picnic basket filled with turkey sandwiches (or wraps), crisp carrots, apple slices, and perhaps a small bag of SunChips. Don’t forget to stroll through the grounds in search of the perfect photo opportunity. Perhaps the photo with the most likes on Instagram earns a special, tantalizing prize upon your return to Pocono Palace Resort? The two-mile Red Trail meanders past all eight waterfalls. Thus, making it the trail of choice for most couples.
