A group of hikers have a number of officers to thank after they were found and rescued hiking in the Hudson Valley.

On Saturday, a 24-year-old man called New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Central Dispatch and said that he and his hiking party were lost on Panther Mountain in the Town of Shandaken in Ulster County.

The unnamed man said that no one was hurt, but they had limited water supplies and battery life on their cell phones.

DEC Forest Rangers Russell Martin and Nathan Shea responded to the trailhead to conduct a search.

The lost hikers were found on the Fox Hollow Trailer. The hikers were exhausted but in good condition, officials say.

The group was re-hydrated and given headlamps prior to returning to their vehicle at the Giant Ledge trailhead.
