Broken Ankle on Escarpment Trail

Town of Hunter - Kaaterskill Wild Forest in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Sept. 3 at 11:54 a.m., Forest Rangers received a call from DEC's Central Dispatch regarding a 39-year-old man from Croton-on-Hudson who slipped while hiking the escarpment trail near the Artist Rock and heard a snap in his ankle. Forest Rangers Fox, Breigle, and Assistant Forest Ranger France responded along with Greene County EMS and volunteers from the Haines Falls, Cedar Grove, and Tannersville fire departments. The responders packed the hiker in a litter and carried him out to a waiting ambulance for transport to a local hospital. The incident concluded by 2:30 p.m.

Please note: The DEC has misnamed Artist Rock. It is actually called Bear's Den. Artist Rock is located just east of North lake on the Escarpment Trail.
