COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE, OR (KPTV) -

Teams from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue safely brought down two hikers who became stranded after leaving the trail near the top of Angel’s Rest.

Deputies were first alerted to the hikers issues just before noon Friday and were able to reach them by cellphone.

The hikers, who are not from the area, said they came up the main trail for about an hour before going off the trail. When they called they said the rocks they were standing on were sliding out from under them as they tried to get back to the trail.

Rescuers told the hikers to stay in place, and were in good condition when crews reached them.
