Sabbaday Falls in White Mountain National Forest is an easy family hike with areas to wade and view of breathtaking Sabbaday Falls. #WhiteMountains #NH
During our White Mountains vacation, we drove from North Conway through the White Mountains National Forest to Lincoln. About halfway, we stopped at Sabbaday Falls for an easy family hike. Like many waterfalls and gorges in the area, it is believed to have been carved out by a glacier over 10,000 years ago. Indeed, Sabbaday Falls is much like The Flume Gorge in many ways, and is a very popular spot in the Summer. Unfortunately, swimming is prohibited at Sabbaday Falls, but it's a wonderful view and very much worth the hike. The kids may not agree as much with me as they were hot and wanted to cool off.
At the moment, I can't seem to locate these files, but when I do, I'll be sure to share more photos with you!
