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. Promised Land State Park is on the Pocono Plateau. The park consist primarily of beech, oak, maple, and hemlock trees. Two lakes and several small streams add to the park’s outstanding scenic beauty. Fall is the best time to visit the Poconos. The lush forests will be in full glory with all the vibrant colors of their fall leaves.
