The man fell between 80 and 100 feet on Sunday while hiking the Island in the Sky trail.
The search began after a call for help about 6 p.m., and was halted late Sunday because of cold and dangerous conditions.
Washington County sheriff's officials say the dead hiker was one of three men in a group hiking Sunday in the park north of Santa Clara.
Sheriff-elect Cory Pulsipher says the other two hikers were found safely.
