Landmark: Christine Hydro Electric Plant N43.51693 W74.30389
Nearest Intersection: Highway 8 and Old Route 8b
Directions: From the intersection of Hwy 8 and Hwy 30 and Elm Lake Rd in Speculator, take Hwy 30 southeast for 3.5 miles. The parking area will be on your left.

Comments, Notes: There is possible two access points for this waterfall. The gate was open to the plant, however there was no one there to get permission to access from that way. It was heavily posted as well as a camera. I jotted down the phone number and tried to place a call to get permission. The other access is from route 8, however, even though there was a trail down, you could see the posted signs on the trees. (they were well worn, and should be replaced if trying to keep folks out) with that in mind, I did not try to go down and get closer photos of the falls.
