Hiker altercation on Mount Tremper

Unread post by dave »

Town of Shandaken in Ulster County

Wilderness Dispute/Rescue:
On Aug. 21 at 2:45 a.m., Forest Ranger Martin received a call from Ray Brook Dispatch about an injured subject on Mount Tremper. At 3:10 a.m., Ranger Martin made phone contact with the 36-year-old from Connecticut who claimed he got into an altercation with his hiking companion and believed he was "being hunted like in Predator." The hiker twisted his ankle while escaping. Three more Rangers responded with a six-wheeler and found the subject at 5:50 a.m., asleep off the trail. Rangers then found the hiking companion, a 31-year-old from Beacon, in the Mount Tremper lean-to. Interviews of both subjects indicated significant drug and alcohol impairment. Both subjects were looked at by Shandaken EMS.
