Sabbaday Falls

Walking in Kancamagus Highway

A 0.3-mile one-way stroll on the popular Sabbaday Brook Trail ends at Sabbaday Falls, a gorge waterfall powering through narrow granite walls into lovely pools. Stairs lead to overlooks with mesmerizing views of the flume. The trailhead is about 15 miles west of the Saco Ranger District Office, and the trail is accessible for people with disabilities.

Sabbaday is an old term for the Sunday Sabbath, a day of rest. According to legend, road workers hid their tools near the falls on a Sunday before heading home for the season, never, apparently, to return for them.
