Green CountyTown of HunterWilderness Rescue: 

At 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 15, the State Police were notified about an overdue hiker on Devil’s Pass near Devil’s Tombstone Campground. 

Two Forest Rangers subsequently found the hiker’s backpack along the trail one-half mile from the trailhead parking lot. Shortly thereafter, the Rangers found the 53-year-old Greenport man with an ankle injury that prevented him from self-rescuing. 

Rangers applied a splint to the man’s lower leg, allowing him to walk with assistance. By 9 a.m., the injured hiker was back at his car and able to drive home.
