TERREBONNE, OR -- A 23-year-old hiker from Vancouver, Washington died at Smith Rock State Park, Tuesday night. Deschutes County 911 received a report just before 7 p.m. that a hiker had fallen about 250 feet, near Picnic Lunch Wall.

 

Park Rangers, fire crews and Search and Rescue teams responded and found Sebastian Baker at the base of the wall. The Sheriff’s Office says Baker was hiking alone and the cause of the fall appears accidental, although it remains under investigation.
