WARNING: Cliff Jumping is Risky and Dangerous
The first thing I need to say before even getting into these locations is that cliff jumping can be very dangerous and illegal in some places.
Water levels change throughout the year making some of these locations dangerous at the wrong time. Do not jump at any of these locations alone or without the proper experience and training.
Never Jump Without Knowing the Water Depth
The other most important thing you must remember is to NEVER JUMP without absolutely knowing the water depth.
It is also never recommended to jump from heights of 40 feet or more. Cliff jumpers have died or altered their lives permanently by jumping at even low heights.
This list is a simple guide to cliff-jumping locations that have meet qualifications for safe jumping in the past with deep enough water and a secure base to jump from. Continue on at your own risk.
