Location: Balsam Lake Mtn Trail - Town of Hardenburgh - Ulster County

Search/Rescue: On July 3 at 8:07 p.m., a hiker contacted DEC Central Dispatch from the Ridge Trail on Balsam Lake Mountain. The subject believed he got turned in the wrong direction and was looking to speak with a Ranger to talk him out. Ranger David Meade called the hiker, confirmed his location, and determined that the man and his friends were not adequately equipped to continue hiking due to darkness. Ranger Nathaniel Shea, responding with head lamps, located the hikers and assisted them out of the woods.
