Bushkill Falls Family Hike: 10 Things You Need To Know

Bushkill Falls Hike: a review and helpful tips for families.


As we pulled into a huge parking lot at Bushkill Falls, my son looked around and noticed the license plate on the car next to us. “Wow, Virginia!” We looked around some more and noticed Delaware and New York.

“I can’t believe people came from  that far away to Pennsylvania to see the waterfalls.”, my son remarked.

It may stump you for a second, but if you look at the map, it really isn’t that bad of drive! Bushkill Falls Park is only 2-2,5 hrs away from Delaware, under 2 hrs from New York, and yes, a little further for Virginia (4,5 hrs), but still pretty doable. Why not spend just a few hours and come to Pennsylvania to enjoy the views of gorgeous waterfalls on a beautiful summer day?

If you live in Eastern PA, this Bushkill Falls hike is definitely a must try for you!
