Hiker Injured near Poet's Ledge

Unread post by dave »

Village of Catskill in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On June 9 at 5:40 p.m., Forest Rangers Fox and Gullen responded to a report of a 65-year-old hiker from Oneonta with an unstable leg injury on the Poet's Ledge Trail in Kaaterskill Wild Forest. Rangers found the subject approximately two miles up the trail and splinted his right knee. With the aid of crutches, the Rangers helped the hiker down the trail until they were met by Rangers Allwine and Dawson with a litter to carry the hiker out to their UTV. The group reached the trailhead at 11:53 p.m., and the hiker declined further medical attention.
