Cliff Diving
Does anyone know of a good place within a few hours drive from Dallas to go cliff diving at? I have been searching for years, and have only found a place near Austin at Inks Lake. I am looking for something higher than 20 feet.

I have seen some pretty good cliffs at White Bluff. I don;t know about diving, though.

Do they still cliff jump at Lake Whitney?

Don't forget about Possum Kingdom.

Yes and some are up to 90 ft.

I've jumped from a few 20-25ish ft. cliffs at lake Grapevine, but haven't been there in years. It was north of the dam and a little west. Gotta watch where you jump though, best to have someone go down and check out depth before hand.

Last time I was down there it was a ticketable offense to jump off a lot of the cliffs...

I didn't know it was illegal. I'd make sure it wasn't! Texoma is a good place too up north.

Lake Whitney is awesome for that!
Definitely worth the trip.

I write an outdoor sports feature for a monthly publication based in New Orleans, Louisiana called Health & Fitness magazine. I've been assigned to write a feature this month on Cliff Jumping, and as I'm not a cliff jumper myself, I'm looking to talk (or email) with people who have knowledge and experience in the sport to help me learn more about opportunities around the U.S. and abroad. I'd also like to hear about the various techniques and what it feels like.

If you may have a few minutes to help me, please send me an email at the address listed below. Thanks in advance for any help.
