Horseshoe Lake cliffs

Horseshoe Lake

Cliff jump­ing is best done on a hot day. A lake shaped like a horse­shoe with sur­round­ing cliffs, the high­est jump point is said to be 80 feet. At approx­i­mate­ly twen­ty-five feet high, it was pret­ty scary for me already. I would not rec­om­mend these jumps for the timid. Be sure to have a spot­ter, so that if you did not land prop­er or freeze up in the frigid waters, at least you got some­one to save you.
