Bushkill Falls

This past August ,when the weather was warm but not overly sunny- my mom, G and I went to Bushkill Falls in the Pocono Mountains. I love all things green except maybe an all green salad (shudder!) so when I saw the lush green park, I was super happy to spend a few hours hiking. I use the word hiking loosely as it wasn’t exactly a hike,it was more of a nature walk with beautiful woody bridges and a bunch of stairmasters thrown in. The color coded trails were all easy to hike, the hardest of which involved a lot of steps but totally worth it to view the 8 waterfalls along the way.The three of us enjoyed the nature walk dipping our feet in the creek that we passed on the way to the main falls.

Beautiful isn’t it?

We rewarded ourselves afterwards with Bushkill’s Finest Fudge located very conveniently in the snack area! All in all, a good way to spend a Saturday. If you are in New York/ New Jersey / Pennsylvania, Bushkill Falls is an ideal day trip for a lovely nature walk.

What do you guys normally reward yourself with after a hike/ trek? Is it coconut water? Or maybe the cream of coconut mixed with pineapple juice and a splash of rum.
