Town of Hunter in Greene County

Wilderness Search:
On Aug.14 at 2 p.m., two Virginia hikers and their dog called Greene County 911 to report they were out of water and lost near the Palenville Overlook. Forest Ranger Dawson was notified by 911 and responded from Kaaterskill Falls. Through text messages of pictures the hikers sent of trail juncture signs, Ranger Dawson determined the hikers' location on the Sleepy Hollow trail. He hiked in from North-South Lake campground where he located the hikers and gave them some water. The Ranger hiked the pair back to the campground and gave one of the hikers a courtesy ride back to the Harding Road trailhead to retrieve their vehicle. The incident concluded by 7 p.m.
