Short walk just off Route 112 (aka "The Kanc). Fairly attractive falls up a short canyon. Definitely worth a short stop. Parking lot and some off road parking. Fee for parking without pass such as Golden Eagle.

Very easy walk with only a few inclines. The falls are not massive but very nice. Lots of benches to rest along the way if you need to. Well maintained.

Short beautiful walk to the falls. The forest service has done an excellent job with paths and railing over and around the falls to the top. So glad we stopped!

Nice short walk to the falls with bench's to rest along the way. Railings keep the stupid people out. Go early to beat the crowds.

The closest lodging to Sabbaday other than camping areas would be the Kancamagus Swift River Inn or the Darby Field Inn in Conway

Yes, I always see dogs on leashes walking up to the falls.
