Lovely, secluded space to soak the feet, read, and meditate. Very relaxing after hiking the mountain trails and cooling after a hot day.

Absolutely stunning beauty at every turn. The water is crystal clear and serene. Combined with the beauty of the fall colors, this water fall is a must see.

I love Bristol Falls! Shallow enough for kids, deep enough under the falls for adults. Some crazy folks jump off the high rocks - it really is deep enough except in the driest of years to make that safe. Do lock up your car and...More

A picture perfect swimming hole and falls that tempts one to swim even on cool day. Easy access points but definitely some Rick scrambling. No litter, trash or yuck. Fun for pups, too.

Beautiful waterfall right in Bristol close to where we stayed. Cool, green and relaxing in July and must be beautiful in the fall with the foliage, as well.

Not exceptional falls but pretty. The drop isn t great. Summer is not the best time but I'm sure they would be better in spring.

We were determined to find this, and finally did. The falls had lots of water after some recent rain, so it was beautiful.

Bristol Falls is very easily accessible right off Route 116. There's a nice big parking area that I imagine must fill up quickly with swimmers in the summer. The falls itself is quite small but the surroundings are quite pretty, especially when all icy in...More

Nice little falls but nothing spectacular. It is accessible right off the road, not much to it. You can walk along the rocks which is nice. We didn't do any swimming though.
