North Shore Rescue is warning the public, again, that if you plan on going for a hike to be prepared.
Search Manager Doug Pope says they got called out around 4:30 PM to find two missing hikers Friday.
Pope says the hikers started at the top of Mountain Highway and then went along the Cedar Tree Trail, which he adds is not very well marked.
“Trying to head to Kennedy Falls and they didn’t make it because of how much snow is back there. They made it part-way and then started to come back, and it was on that return trip that they got lost and off the trail, they ended up heading all the way down to and getting stuck on the west bank of Lynn Creek.”
He says the team was lucky enough to get the hikers coordinates before their cell phone died.
They have since been walked out.
