Nature is beautiful and healing but how are we returning the favor?
Let's enjoy one of our areas most visited waterfalls in the Pocono Mountains, Bushkills Falls. While hiking on the 2 mile Red trail we will discuss the impact of tourism on natural spaces. The Red trail is rated for "avid hikers" as there are several sections of steep inclines(354 feet elevation gains).
Fee to participate are $16.50 for adults, $15.50 for seniors and $8.50 for children. Fees can be paid in advance via the Bushkill Falls site: https://tickets.visitbushkillfalls.com/webstore/shop/viewitems.aspx?CG=tickets&C=gatickets
or you can pay the morning of at the Falls entrance. It is highly recommended to pay in advance as lines tend to be extremely long.
Restrooms available at the trailhead(beginning of the trail)
Things to Bring:
· Lunch & Snacks
· Water (Staying hydrated is very important)

With Pennsylvania being in prime tick territory be sure your spray protects you from ticks. Need more info? Check out the following link and if as always post any questions you may have here.
