Wilderness Search: On August 21, the mother of a 20-year-old inexperienced hiker reported that he was exhausted and unable to self-rescue from climbing Slide Mountain. Within 30 minutes of beginning their search, three DEC Forest Rangers found the Endwell man asleep along the trail. With some food and water, the hiker regained strength to walk out with the responding Rangers. Within two hours, Rangers reunited the hiker with family without need of additional first aid.
