Hikers Lost on Overlook Mountain

Unread post by dave »

Town of Woodstock in Ulster County

Wilderness Rescue:
On May 14 at 1 p.m., a group of hikers from Long Island called for help after losing the trail on their way up Overlook Mountain. New York State Police, Ulster County Sheriff's, and Woodstock Police began searching. Forest Ranger Franceschina was able to get the group's coordinates from Ray Brook Dispatch. At 2:13 p.m., Ranger Franceschina reached the subjects, who ranged in age from 13 to 46, in dense mountain laurel approximately a quarter of a mile off the trail. The hikers were in good condition. Ranger Franceschina helped the group back to the trailhead by 3 p.m.
