Roaring Gap, NC -- Officials are investigating how a 28-year-old man fell to his death at a Stone Mountain State Park waterfall.

Authorities haven't released the name of the man. The man had been hiking with his family at the park. Parks superintendent Edward Farr told the Winston-Salem Journal that the man climbed up about 100 feet next to the waterfall Saturday before falling, hitting at least two ledges before landing in the shallow water.

Farr said investigators have determined that it was an accident but that the investigation into the man's death will continue through next week.

Stone Mountain Park is located in Wilkes and Alleghany counties.
