Spring hikers issued warning after series of trail rescues
Fish and Game conservation officers were called to the park in Jaffrey about 10 p.m. after three hikers from Winchester needed help.
On Monday, 75-year-old David Humphrey of Falmouth, Maine, was rescued from the summit of Bond Cliff in New Hampshire’s White Mountains after enduring a cold, wet night stranded on the trail.
The incident is the third this week in which hikers have ventured onto high elevation trails, where significant snow and ice conditions prevail, and gotten into trouble, Fish and Game Captain John Wimsatt said in a news release.
Fish and Game Conservation Officers are advising spring hikers anxious to hit the mountain trails to be patient and cautious before venturing into high elevations.
