Town of Lexington in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue: On Jan. 19, six Forest Rangers responded to a call from a hiker stating that his hiking partner had sustained an injury to her lower leg and needed assistance getting back to the trailhead. Rangers located the 59-year-old female hiker from Roxbury approximately 2.5 miles from the parking area near the summit of the trail-less, steep, and rocky Sherrill Mountain. Rangers warmed the injured hiker, provided first aid, and splinted her leg. The hiker was assisted back down the mountain by the Rangers where she was transported by her hiking partner to a nearby medical facility for further treatment of her injury.
