Great spot for a day or overnight trip. About 45 minutes north of Silverthorn and an hour from Breckenridge!
Very easy to get to, it's only about three turns. Coming from I-70, you will head towards the target in Silverthorn and just keep driving until you reach Heeney Road, continue on that road until you reach the dam, and cross the dam and the jump spot is right on the other side. Park right on the side of the road there is more than enough space for several cars! There is limited cell phone service and only one inn/restaurant that has some food so make sure you come prepared. As you are driving along the reservoir there are several campgrounds but the nearest one to the jump spot is called Elliot Creek Campground, great spot with some pretty sweet views of the reservoir! There are three spots you can jump from, ones about 5 foot drop, next is about 20 foot drop, and the big one is around 50 feet! Water's a little cold but it's worth it!
