Find the Hidden Cliff Jumping in the Truckee River

Tom’s Experience jumping into the Truckee River:

Jumping into the Truckee River was an interesting adventure.

Truckee River Northern Nevada Pit Stop

We were making the long drive across northern Nevada and there really wasn’t much to stop and do. We decided we would stop here to do a little cliff jumping to break up the long drive.

I-80 Truckee River Cliff Jumping

The parking is right off of eastbound I-80. There is just a small parking area right next to the Freeway. There are some cement barriers that you have to climb over and then a well worn trail that takes you under some trees and out to the cliffs.

Jumping From Truckee River Cliffs

The cliffs are about 20 feet high but the Truckee River is very green and dirty. There is a cement area that you can jump off of which leads to the deepest spot. Just be sure to check the depth of the water before you jump in since the river depth changes.
