Gorge Jumping at Second Dam

Second Dam - Search Nearby - Added by Fletcher Chapin

Great spot to go gorge jumping

Park on Tower View Drive, and then look towards Route 79. If you walk straight across Route 79 and then keep going there should be a path down the hill between some bushes, then cross Penny Lane and continue walking straight until you go between two houses and reach the woods. Walk down this trail for about half a mile until the trail turns right, then look downhill (to your left) for a relatively steep path down to the river. The path should be right after a set of steps that are also going to your left down the hill. When you get to the bottom of the path you should see a dam and a grafittied builiding to your right. There's usually a good amount of people there swimming and hopefully it'll be easy to find. Enjoy the swimming/gorge jumping!
