Enjoy this beautiful remote, flatwater section of the Hudson River! Great for beginners!

Access is limited to a public boat launch off of Spier Falls Rd.  There is parking for a few vehicles. 

There are dams at both ends of this section which allows for an excellent flatwater adventure.  The section is 5.5 miles long.  Most of the undeveloped shoreline is forested.

This is a leave no trace area, please carry out all garbage.

Pretty close to wear I live. Been there a couple times with the kayaks and to swim. Clean area and a beautiful place.
