Red River Gorge Hikers Safe

It took laser generated directions and 3-d maps for the Wolfe County Search and Rescue Team to respond to a group of six college students who got lost while hiking in the Red River Gorge.The students were hiking on Rough Trail (#221) when they made a wrong turn onto an unofficial, user-generated trail, paralleling Parched Corn Creek.The group then got lost on the user-generated trail and traveled up a steep drainage that was thick with rhododendron and other vegetation.Reaching the group was further complicated by a system of cliffs in the drainage.
