Lost Bikers

Posted on 28th September 2010 at 08:08

Cowlitz County Search and Rescue located two Vancouver-area men who got lost while mountain-biking near Mt. St. Helens. The wife of one of the men called Cowlitz County just after 7 pm, saying that she’d just gotten a cell phone call, with her husband and brother-in-law saying that they were lost in the woods near Blue Lake, off the 8100 road. Deputies found the pair’s car at about 8:20 pm, along with tracks heading up a trail. Search and Rescue was activated, along with several Reserve Deputies. They checked roads and trails around the area, and at about 2:40 this morning, the two men were found on the Loowit Trail, safe and sound. The pair was tired and hungry, but otherwise were unhurt.
