A group of hikers got lost in the Hudson Valley while searching for waterfalls.
On Tuesday, the DEC announced the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Dispatch recently received a call from a female hiker reporting that she and three others were lost in the Neversink Unique Area.
The hikers parked at a lot near Katrina Falls Road where they proceeded to hike to the Yellow Trail and then to the Red Trail to see the waterfalls. While heading down the Blue Trail, the hikers got lost on June 3 around 5:15 p.m.
