Town of Windham in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Oct. 17 at 2:30 p.m., Forest Ranger Fox received a call from a hiker whose companion suffered an injury to her right ankle on the Escarpment Trail above the Elm Ridge lean-to. Forest Rangers Bink, Fox, and Skudlarek responded to assist. At 4 p.m., Ranger Fox located the 55-year-old hiker from Forest Hills. After wrapping the injured ankle, the group began the hike out of the woods where they were met by Rangers Bink and Skudlarek. The hiking party was out of the woods at 5:30 p.m., and advised they would seek additional medical attention on their own.
