Bushkill falls has been refered as the "Niagara of Pennsylvannia".

If you enjoy hiking, waterfalls and natural surroundings, I would highly reccommend Bushkill Falls.

There are four main trails (15 minutes, 45 minutes, 75 minutes and 150 minutes) AKA the Green, Yellow, Blue and Red paths respectively.

All paths give you an opportunity to see Bushkill Falls.

If you are in good health I stringly reccommend the Red trail. In addition to seeing several waterfalls, you get a panoramic view of the Delaware Valley. (At least part of it ;))

The best time to visit IMO is late September or Early October when the leaves are chaning color.

Bushkill Falls is a great place to visit for a day trip.
