Best Cliff-Jumping: The Quarry, Cuyahoga Valley National Park

There's nothing like diving off a two-story sandstone cliff into the cool water of a 16-foot-deep quarry. Tucked inside the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the Quarry has offered the best cliff-jumping around since 1956. For an annual fee of $100 -- or $125 for a two-person membership and $175 for a family -- you can enjoy the rush of climbing up the tree-lined quarry walls, only to plummet from a one-story cliff, a two-story cliff, or an extended diving board.
