    Well worth the short stop!
    Awesome! Very short walk/hike into the falls along a smooth trail. We saw someone pushing a baby stroller along it, which was probably a pretty bumpy ride for baby, but they made it work. It's a quick outing, maybe you can stretch to 30 min but it's fascinating to examine the fault lines that are clearly on display and called out on the tourist information boards nicely. You'll want to see the falls from both above and below as each offers a unique view. Well worth your time!! They do ask for $5 parking pass but only accept cash at this location (there are machines at other stops in the park that accept credit cards). Even after a rainy period, we didn't encounter any mud and it wasn't slippery.

    Nice in Sept but probably even better in October
    Right off the Kancamagus Scenic Highway, this trail is fairly short but with a big pay-off at the end. Easy to follow trail with boardwalks that take you close to the falls. Don’t pass this up if you’re in the area—great place to stretch your legs between Lincoln & Conway.

    Loved it
    This one is a short hike to the falls. Some of it is uphill but it is not too bad. The parking cost $5 but once you’ve paid it, it covers other parking lots. The waterfalls are beautiful! Definitely worth going. There’s a vault toilet In parking lot.

    Great visit
    Two adults visited Sabbaday Falls on the Kancamagus Highway in Albany, NH on a Monday in late August 2023. The parking lot wasn't full. The 0.3 mile trail to the falls leads to an uphill climb along a mostly graded easy-to-walk path, although the part at the end gets quite steep leading from the base to the head of the falls. The entire walk was beautiful and very cooling on a hot day from the spray from the falls. It is a popular site, so YMMV regarding available parking. Leashed dogs are welcome. Note that the pit toilets were far from clean the afternoon we were there, even though they had a sign they had been cleaned that morning. As noted by others, there is a $5 parking fee that can be used the same day at other White Mountain parking areas or if you don't have an annual pass.

    Awesome natural experience from the water falling down to the rock bed below!
    What a beautiful natural sight to enjoy! It was a rainy day, but we decided to stop and walk to the falls. Imagine that people have been coming to this beautiful inspirational site for centuries!! Walking in, you first encounter the rock bed and pool at the bottom of the falls. There is a sturdy wooden walkway taking you up to the brink of the falls. Stunning views up and down! Take your time. Take a deep breath. Enjoy the soothing sounds of water crashing down. And walk down slowly, taking it all in. I would love to see the Falls on a sunny day with the rays filtering down from the treetops!

    Very nice, short hike
    Very easy & short hike. I went on a Sunday at the end of foliage, parking was crazy but doable. Not much foliage but Not much foliage but I love the red & orange leaves on the rocks. Even with my tripod I was able to work around all the people to get some good photos.

Our small dog and my elderly parents (one with a knee replacement) had no trouble walking to the falls. The trail is well maintained and wide enough for folks to pass easily. Parking is limited, but you can park on the road. There is an outhouse type bathroom at the parking lot. Beautiful scenery and definitely worth the stop.

You should definitely make time to visit these falls when traversing the Kancamagus highway; definitely one the highlights

Pros:
Fairly short trail
Interpretative signs well placed
Good size parking
Nice steps leading up and down the falls; lots of good photo-taking opportunities

Cons:
A bit steep towards the end of the trial; be warned

Visit shouldn't take more than 45min or so, but I would highly recommending seeing at least once

less than a half-mile hike is required to view the picturesque waterfalls that make this one of the Kanc's most popular stops. it is one of the most visited waterfalls in New Hampshire and it can be a bit challenging to find a spot to park either in the lot or along the road. it is a 10-15 minute walk to the fall.

You can peek at the lower falls and pool at the base, or climb up along the stairway to the top of the falls. There you can see a 45′ drop to the pool below.

Note: here we saw the board -Self-service pay station: instructions to pay the nominal fee. so if you have not paid earlier, pls do so.

Restrooms are also available.

Definitely worth a stop if you are in Conway or the Kancagamus highway. It’s a short up hill climb and you can see the beautiful falls. We went in the evening when there were less people. Absolutely beautiful!
