Hikers lost in Slide Mtn Wilderness

Unread post by dave »

Town of Shandaken in Ulster County

Wilderness Search:
On Feb. 11 at 5:50 p.m., Ray Brook Dispatch notified Forest Ranger Horn about two hikers lost in the Slide Mountain Wilderness Area. Coordinates obtained by Dispatch placed the 28- and 31-year-old subjects near the summit. The pair from Dolgeville and Herkimer lost the trail as darkness set in and called 911. Ranger Horn called one hiker’s cell phone and helped guide the pair a short distance back to the trail. The hikers shared tracking information with Ranger Horn to ensure they made it back to the trailhead. At 8:30 p.m., the hikers reached the trailhead where they were met by New York State Police and Shandaken Police.
