Distance: 0.3 mile
Time: 5-10 minutes
Difficulty: Nature Walk
A short walk from the Kancamagus Highway (Route 112), Sabbaday Falls is a favorite pit stop for tourists and Tripyramid hikers alike. The three-story waterfall appears unassuming as it slips through a keyhole, peacocks over the main drop, and suddenly surges through the gorge’s narrow rock walls and over the final cascade, settling into an emerald basin pool.
Sabbaday Falls is reached via the trailhead for the Sabbaday Brook Trail, a White Mountain National Forest hike that ventures to the col between North and Middle Tripyramid. Waterfall hunters need not worry about mountainous terrain as the trail is all easy going. There’s a small picnic area at the trailhead, along with signage educating visitors on the geology of the falls to complete the tourist decor.
