Mother, daughter lost and found on hike in Corinth

CORINTH — A mother and teenage daughter got lost on a hike and were found and escorted out by a state forest ranger and three Saratoga County sheriff’s deputies Sunday.

At 1:15 p.m., Saratoga County 911 transferred a call to DEC’s Ray Brook Dispatch reporting two lost hikers on Spruce Mountain in the town of Corinth. County 911 coordinates placed the hikers near the old Spruce Mountain Road. The hikers had taken the incorrect trail for the summit and become disoriented along the climb. Forest Ranger Joe Hess responded to the trailhead along with three sheriff’s deputies, and they began heading to the hikers’ last known coordinates.

At 3:06 p.m., the rescue crew located the 52-year-old mother and 13-year-old daughter from Latham and started walking the pair back to the trailhead, where they were evaluated by Corinth emergency medical services and released.
