This senior found the short hike to the falls to be relatively easy, and well worth the effort. The falls themselves are beautiful, probably the best along the Kancamagus Highway, so we really enjoyed visiting them. Make sure that you pay the $5 parking fee...More

The hike to the falls is short but steep and uphill, and the falls were underwhelming. Sorry but if you are an out-of-shape senior, the hike is not worth it and will make you grumpy!

We stopped here while driving the Kancamagus highway. There's a parking area just off the road, which had a good number of cars on a summer weekday but still had spots available. We started up the trail; it's only a quarter mile or so to...More

As others have written, the hike to the falls is not difficult. Very much worth the stop. The scenery is gorgeous!! We were lucky to find a parking spot- this stop requires that you pay $5 for a pass to hang on the rear view...More

Sabbaday Falls is on Highway 112 between Lincoln NH and North Conway NH. We stayed in Lincoln and the trip to Sabbaday Falls took about 20-25 minutes.

It should be easy to find - but keep your eyes peeled for the parking lot signs. We missed it on the first pass, but just turned around and came back. However, strongly recommend that you stop at the White Mountains... More
