Hiker stranded on icy Kaaterskill Falls

Unread post by dave »

Town of Hunter  in Greene County 

Wilderness Rescue:
On March 1 at 4:50 p.m., Forest Rangers Dawson and Peterson responded to a report of a hiker stranded on the ice near Kaaterskill Falls. The 27-year-old from Maryland was wearing sneakers and did not have micro-spikes, which are needed to cross the ice-covered area. Hikers at the viewing platform saw the hiker was stuck on the ice and called for help. At 5:40 p.m., Ranger Dawson reached the hiker, provided micro-spikes and a hiking pole, and helped her off the ice. Rangers walked the subject back to the trailhead. Resources were clear at 6:40 p.m.
