May 1, 2021 – Profile Falls – New Hampshire

Today Wilma and I Adventured to Profile Falls in Bristol, New Hampshire. Profile Falls is a cascade falls of approximately 40 feet. It is sourced from the Smith River. The trail to the Falls is just .2 miles in length. The Falls is popular for swimming, and fishing, and is known as a popular summer location.

We had a roaring Adventure to Profile Falls. This was our main destination, and I decided to share this blog last as it was the highlight of todays Adventures. I had been wanting to visit Profile Falls, and today was finally the day! I pulled out my New England Waterfalls book to check on directions before heading out before the sun was up. I was thrilled to find ourselves the only ones on site, a perk of a 6am arrival. The parking lot to the Falls was closed but the adjacent parking was open. We began our journey crossing over a the rushing Smith River. The signs were clear and the trail was short. The trail down the Fall edge was steep, especially when with an exuberant dog in lead! Profile Falls was gorgeous, the rushing water leftover from days of rain, perfect timing for this Adventure. The water was high and the rocks slippery so there were not too many options to explore, but we enjoyed the grand view.

After taking in the beauty of Profile Falls I attempted to walk to the top, with no luck, a huge drop off below. However I am guessing if we continued to hike on the nearby trails we may have eventually have made it to this spot. We found some views from high above before heading back to the car. Unfortunately on the way out we were chased by a barking dog, no owner in sight. Luckily he did not seem aggressive, and we had no incident. Besides that little moment we had a wonderful Adventure to Profile Falls. A fun way to start our day (Rating: 3.5).
