Hikers get lost on Ute Trail?
Two hikers got lost on the highly-traveled Ute Trail on Thursday, somehow managing to roam off the steep switchback single-track.

At about 8:45 a.m., the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the hikers. Mountain Rescue Aspen was called upon to find them. Seven MRA members responded and helped the hikers to safety.

The hikers had gotten into a steep area of loose rocks and could not go up the hill any farther. They called for help because they didn’t feel comfortable going down the hill. Rescuers found the hikers at about 10:45 a.m. The MRA members were able to move the lost hikers back onto the trail, and the parties walked down the trail and were back on Ute Avenue by noon.
