SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — A woman fell off a cliff and died in northern Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains.

How the woman in her late 20s fell off Steamboat Point early Tuesday was unknown, the Sheridan County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Sheriff's officials didn't release the woman's name before notifying her family, The Sheridan Press reported.

A witness reported the fall around 5:50 a.m. Emergency responders found the woman dead around 7:15 a.m.

Steamboat Point overlooks U.S. Highway 14 about 20 miles (16 kilometers) west of Sheridan. The clifftop is reachable by a steep trail less than a mile (1.6 kilometers) long.
