Cliff Jump at Acapulco Rock (Chimney Rock)
Alabama › Acapulco Rock
Added by Edward Day
A must do jump for the adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers. The 60 foot jump from the top of Acapulco Rock is an iconic spot for cliff jumping in Alabama.
Acapulco Rock is a great spot for cliff jumping for all ages. There are plenty of spots to jump from varying heights. Acapulco Rock (also referred to as Chimney Rock) is accessible only by water. Following the pin provided will lead you straight to the rock.
In summer, you can expect a good crowd to be at Acapulco Rock taking the plunge. However, going very early in the morning or during the week as opposed to weekends could give you the rock to yourself.
When you pull up to Acapulco Rock you swim to the left side of the rocks where you see a ledge that is half the height of the tallest rock. There is a rope to assist you in climbing up to the shorter rock (Chicken Rock) and is around 20 feet high.
For the more daring individuals, continue upwards to the high 60 foot jump off of the top of Acapulco Rock. The climb upwards to get to the top is pretty straightforward. The jump is located to the right of Chicken Rock, not directly above. Jumping directly above Chimney requires you to jump out to miss hitting Chicken Rock.
