Cliff Jumping at High Rocks
Oregon › Cross Park

- Cliff jumping at a popular Portland swimming hole
- A great place to soak up the sun on a nice day
- Different height rocks for young and old
In the town of Gladstone, just before the Clackamas converges with the Willamette, you’ll find one of Portland’s most popular swimming holes. This idyllic little stretch of river is deep, slow, and provides ample space to spread out. The banks of the river are lined with rocks of various heights that make it the ideal location for some fun cliff jumping.
It’s typically pretty crowded on sunny summer weekends, but if you’re looking to have a little fun jumping off of rocks and soaking up some sun, it’s definitely worth checking out.
As always, be safe, know your limits, and plan to go with a friend.
When you're done having fun, swing by Roake's and try their Coney Island hot dog. You won't regret it.

Usually crowded with unsavory drunks during the summer. Swimming here could get you killed as there are underwater currents. I don't recommend this to anyone, but you can go to the real high rocks up the Clackamas River, past Estacada
