Wilderness Rescue:
On Nov. 16 at 9:48 a.m., Forest Ranger Fox received notification from Greene County 911 of a lost hiker with a stable lower leg injury on the Cranberry Bog Trail. Forest Rangers Dawson and Fox responded and at 11:23 a.m., Ranger Fox came across the 32-year-old hiker at the intersection of the Escarpment Trail and the Elm Ridge Trail. After Rangers administered first aid to the subject's twisted ankle and minor scrapes, he was able to hike out to the trailhead on Rt. 23. The hiker declined additional medical treatment, choosing to seek further medical assistance on his own. The incident concluded at 12:20 p.m.
