About this Location

Profile Falls is a waterfall on the Smith River in Bristol. It is easy to access from a short, wide dirt path that leads to a grassy picnic area by the brook. The waterfall is impressive for its size and width, and it changes depending on the season and the weather. In the spring, it is powerful and roaring, while in the summer, it is smaller and calmer. Some people enjoy swimming at the base of the falls but be careful as the rocks are slippery and the water is cold.
