GRUNDY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

South Cumberland State Park Rangers are investigating a hiking death that occurred on the Fiery Gizzard Trail in Grundy County, Monday. 

According to the Grundy County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, dispatchers received a call from hikers of a woman hurt on the trail below the Day Loop, around 1 p.m.

South Cumberland Park Rangers, Grundy County Sheriff, Clint Shrum, and Tracy City Police Chief, Charlie Wilder responded to the scene. Upon arrival, authorities found the body of a white 64-year old woman from Nashville, TN.

Sheriff Clint Shrum stated there were no sign of foul played and this appeared to be a tragic accident. The South Cumberland State Park Rangers will continue working the case.
