Hiker falls off Ashley Falls

Town of Hunter in Greene County

Wildland Rescue: On August 21, DEC Forest Rangers rescued a 16-year-old YMCA camper hit by a falling rock while climbing Ashley Falls. The youth was knocked unconscious into a pool of water. Rangers and local paramedics and ambulance personnel stabilized the youth in rescue equipment designed to move patients with head or spinal injuries. It took an estimated five hours to bring the youth to a waiting ambulance for transportation to Columbia Memorial Hospital. Ashley Falls is located just north of North-South Lake Campgrounds. While the 61' waterfall isn't particularly high, it is dangerous to hike around.
