Dive, Rock Climb, and Swim

On the North end of Ririe Reservoir there is a great little park with cliff jumping and even rock climbing. There is a trail from the south end of the parking lot down along the cliffs. There are great spots to jump into the lake ranging from almost nothing all the way up to 80 feet high. As always, be safe.
