    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.

This is an absolutely must do when driving along the Kancamangus. It is a short 15 minute walk to the falls from the parking lot. However, we spent more time admiring the true natural beauty.

Come during the off season to avoid massive crowds. Our most recent visit in November was perfect because it was not too crowded and there was available parking, which I doubt is the case during peak foliage season.

These popular waterfalls were off the Kancamagus Highway (NH 112). Viewpoints were a 0.3-mile (0.4 km) hike in and out on easy grades from the trailhead’s parking lot. Interpretive displays explained the area’s historical significance. On a weekend morning the parking lot and trail filled up fast. An outhouse near the trailhead was clean and functional. Access required a White Mountains National Forest day pass. We liked all that we saw here; we disliked nothing.

My wife and I stopped along the Kancamagus Highway to check out these falls.

Reaching the falls took no time at all (only .3 miles). Nice viewing area at the base, and up near the top by the wooden bridge.

After the falls, we followed the Pine Bend Brook Trail for a while. Beautiful! Lots of mushrooms on the ground. There were a few tricky spots where we had to scramble up and down the hillside because the path was too close to the water. It was a fantastic hike!

This is an absolute must-do. It is 0.3 miles in and 0.3 miles back out. Through most of the walk, you are walking beside the stream that comes down from the falls and it is so pretty. There are steps and walkways over the falls. It is beautiful and I would highly recommend it. It is uphill on the way in, but it isn't difficult, since it is so short. (We even saw a women with a broken foot in a boot doing the walk!)

This is a very scenic area that is worth a look if you are in the area and looking to stretch your legs. By the falls there are steps and railings in the areas with steeper drop offs. The trail can also be used as access to much longer hikes.

The location of the falls is on the Kanc, so you will need a pass to park in the lot. There are self-service boxes, so that you can buy one on site. The falls are lovely and remind me of a small Flume. The path is easily accessible with tennis shoes. In and out is probably a half hour. The water flowing all along the trail is very pretty. Didn't see anyone getting into the water here. There are signs posted telling folks to stay on the trail and not to be in the water within 500 feet (I think) from the falls.

We had some snow on the ground the day we did this hike and it was not bad. It’s an easy hike in and back. Worth the trip to see the falls as they are beautiful. The gate to walk close to the falls is close this time of year due to the snow and ice but you can still get close enough to see them. It’s very peaceful. I’m very quiet.
