    A leap of faith is when you make a jump from a high point and land in a bail of hay.

    You can leap of faith off all view points and also there are several other spots located around each section of each city, as well as Masyaf.

    A leap of faith spot is marked by a group of birds standing on the ledge you are supposed to jump from.

    AbylitiesOne of the most fun achievements.

    Time consuming but isn't it rewarding leaping into a bale of hay from 200 feet up?

    Solario32A very scenic achievement :)

    ALoneWolf42If anyone was wondering, you do not need to do 50 unique jumps.

    I found one that was a very short climb and just ran through the same one 39 times. (I'd already done 11 in other spots.)

    Also from what have read the achievement can be unlocked by jumping 50 times off the same point so all you have to do is jump into the hay go back up and repeat

    s1nTh23haha. ^ This doucher voted you down for a pointless solution? It told us we can use the same one and not find 50. Not so pointless now eh?

    TruthTwoAlso - I am looking to get this achievement quickly as a one-of and not as part of gameplay, so this works awesomely. Downvoting a perfectly good solution just because you don't like it.... Poor form. +1 from me

    In the Kingdom, go to the stone building that contains Flag #68. (The flag is on a box next to some barrels in an interior corner at ground level.) On the outer side of the west wall is a hay stack. You can run a counter clockwise circle from the haystack, up the hill immediately to its left, and do a dive into the hay. There cannot possibly be a faster way to get this achievement.

    In Acre, by the Assassin's Bureau, there is a easy place where you go behind it and there is a ladder to climb and then a simple easy to repeat leap of faith.

    If you walk down from the Assassin's Creed HQ in Masyaf, there are several small houses. When your around half way down the large hill, taking the path popular with the NPCs, there's a house with a haystack and down the slope, there's another haystack. One option here is to climb up 2 sets of ladders and jump on to a stack of 2 crates covered in colorful cloth and onto a higher roof with a wooden platform overlooking the haystack. Jumping off the house and into the haystack takes 10-20 seconds each time, but there's an even shorter way to perform a leap of faith. If you stick to the right on your way to the second haystack, you'll go up a slight slope which levels onto a platform considerably higher than the path below, which goes up to the haystack quite a few meters in front of you down the well tilted slope. Use cn_RT to quickly jog to the corner of the platform and then tap cn_A to perform a leap of faith and soar like an eagle to your landing spot in the haystack. This is the quickest leap of faith setup in the game. Each run only takes 5-10 seconds.

    I was able to find an easy way to finish this achievement if you can find an archer's tower in the Kingdom with a haystack underneath. All you need is to climb quickly up the archer's tower and then run to the edge into the haystack. Because it is only a short climb you can do this within a few minutes by quickly climbing, running and jumping of the archer's tower.
