Details

The "Niagara of Pennsylvania," Bushkill Falls is among the Keystone State's most famous scenic attractions. This unique series of eight waterfalls, nestled deep in the wooded Pocono Mountains, is accessible through an excellent network of hiking trails and bridges which afford fabulous views of the falls and the surrounding forest.

This will give us a chance to get some great waterfall shots. We can explore long exposure, giving that cotton candy effect to the rushing water. There will also be some great nature shots as well. This is a 2 hour journey each direction. We can meet somewhere close and carpool. This will be a long day, but very rewarding. Admission is $12.50.

The trails vary in length and difficulty:

Green Trail - View the Main Falls from the green trail, which takes about 15 minutes to walk. No climbing is involved, however, there are steps.

Yellow Trail - View the Main Falls, as well as Lower Gorge Falls, Laurel Glen and Upper Canyon, which takes 45 minutes to walk.

Blue Trail - View Pennell Falls from the blue trail, which takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to walk.

Red Trail - View Bridal Veil Falls from the Red trail. This trail is for the avid hiker in that it spans almost 2 miles, includes all eight falls, and takes over 2 hours to hike.
