CORBETT, Ore. – A man fell about 75 feet to his death while hiking on Angel’s Rest Trail in the Columbia River Gorge Saturday morning.

The hiker was reportedly hiking with another person when he fell down a steep embankment, said Lt. Steve Alexander with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office.

Firefighters from Corbett responded after another hiker got to the man’s body, but found him unresponsive, Alexander said.

The man’s name has not been released pending notification of his family.
