SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake County Search and Rescue safely rescued a stranded hiker Friday evening on the Lisa Falls trail.
According to authorities, a male hiker had hiked up the west ridge near Lisa Falls then descended down a ledge, with the assumption it would lead to the falls. However, the hiker became stuck and didn’t feel like he could make it back up the steep, wet rock.
