Corinth Quadrangle

Spier Falls is an officially named waterfall, listed on the USGS GNIS.  For all intents and purposes, there is no longer a waterfall here.  It is now a fairly large hydro-electric facility.  At the base of the dam, there is terrain that would qualify to be a waterfall if water was flowing.  As with most hydro-electric projects, the power plant controls the flow and during a majority of the time, there is little to no water coming over the dam.  It is likely that water does flow at certain times of the year but it has been dry each time we have been there.  

The site can be viewed from the side of the road, just north of the parking area for the facility.

The Hudson River flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
