Town of Hunter in Greene County

Search: At 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 7, DEC's Central Office dispatch received a call from Greene County 911 reporting two lost hikers on the Indian Head Creek Trail nearly a mile from Platte Clove. The hikers were stuck because they did not have any lights. Cell phone coordinates indicated that the two subjects were on the Devil's Path just east of the junction with the Overlook Trail on Indian Head Mountain. Rangers hiked in from Platte Clove Road and located the subjects in good health, but cold. The hikers were warmed, provided lights, and assisted out to Platte Clove Road. The subjects stated they had gotten a late start and began hiking the Indian Head loop at 1 p.m. They were approximately two miles from the trailhead when it became too dark to continue. The pair was given a courtesy ride to their vehicle at the Prediger Road Trailhead.
