Town of Denning in Ulster County

Wildland Rescue: On June 10 at approximately 10:50 a.m., DEC Central Dispatch received a call reporting a 50-year-old male hiker from Catskill at the Biscuit Brook lean-to with an ankle injury. Forest Rangers Robert Stratton and Kevin Slade responded and reached the hiker at 1:30 p.m. The Rangers assessed his injury and determined the hiker could begin walking out under his own power. He was met by a local fire department off-road utility vehicle, which transported the hiker the remaining distance to the trailhead, where he sought follow up care on his own.
