Hiker lost in North-South Lake Region

Unread post by dave »

Greene County in Town of Hunter

Wilderness Search:
On Feb. 12, a 17-year-old from Niskayuna and a 16-year-old from Albany went for a hike from the South Lake trailhead to Sunset Rock. The pair arrived at Sunset Rock at approximately 5 p.m. On their way back, the subjects missed the marked trail and ended up at a small pond. When they realized they were not on the trail, they called their parents before calling 911. At 6:35 p.m., Greene County 911 requested Ranger assistance. Forest Rangers Dawson and Gullen responded and determined the hikers were at the Kaaterskill hotel site. Rangers hiked in, located the two hikers, provided them with warmer clothing, and helped them out to the trailhead where they met their parents at 9:30 p.m.
