Hiker lost on Wittenberg Mountain

Unread post by dave »

Town of Shandaken in Ulster County

Wilderness Search:
On July 12 at 6:30 p.m., Central Dispatch called Forest Ranger Horn about a lost hiker in the Slide Mountain Wilderness. Cell phone coordinates placed the 26-year-old from West Islip near the summit of Wittenberg Mountain. Ranger Horn spoke to the subject via phone and determined that due to their lack of experience and proper gear, the hiker should wait there for Ranger assistance. Rangers Horn and Sweeney reached the subject at 10:45 p.m., provided gear, food and water, and began escorting him toward the trailhead. Resources were clear at 2 a.m.
