An unidentified woman is dead after falling from a popular hiking trail in Squamish, according to police.
They said the woman was hiking near the first summit on the Stawamus Chief between 4 and 5 p.m. Sunday when the incident occurred.
Not much is known about what caused the woman to fall and officials said she was not carrying a phone or identification.
Search and rescue crews described her as a white woman with black, curly hair in her mid-30s. They said she was wearing a light blue tank top and light green khaki shorts.
Police are asking anyone who may have seen or heard anything before, during or after the incident to contact them.
The popular mountain has three main summits ranging from 2,000 to 2,300 feet high, which are all accessible via steep hiking trails.
