Two lost hikers, a man and woman in their 30’s, are safe after spending several long hours on the Howe Sound Crest trail last night.
North Shore Rescue and Lions Bay Search and Rescue got the call just before 10 Wednesday night.
North Shore Rescue’s Team Leader Mike Danks says Lions Bay searchers made voice contact with the hikers at around 11:30 on the Mount Unnecessary trail, but because of poor cellular service it was difficult to get good co-ordinates for their location.
Everyone made it off the mountain safely by 1 A.M.
Danks says neither of the hikers were experienced.
