Hiker on Monserate Mountain rescued

North County Fire performed a trail rescue for an injured hiker on Monserate Mountain this morning, July 9.

They used a stokes basket a mile and a half uphill on the trail to rescue the adult hiker, who had a leg injury.

Once off the trail, the hiker refused medical attention or transportation to hospital, according to NCFPD spokesperson John Choi.

Choi encourages hikers to know where they are located on the trail utilizing the trail marker system, stick to marked trails and have hydration with them, at least one liter per person.
