This is a parent’s worst nightmare. A ten-year-old girl recently fell to her death at Fall Creek Falls State Park. Apparently, she got too close to the edge of a trail overlook, lost her footing, and fell more than 200 feet. The family of this little girl needs to be in our thoughts and prayers.
Perhaps, this link may be useful to others. It is the Tennessee Trails Association Hiking Handbook. For those of us that like to hike at state parks, it is worth looking through, especially if you have children with you.
