A group of volunteers helped rescue two hikers who got lost while hiking near Idyllwild, sheriff's officials said Monday.
The two men were hiking on Sunday on a trail near Humber Park when they lost their way and called the sheriff's department for help, sheriff's Sergeant John Morin said.
"The hiker advised he and his partner were lost and needed assistance down the trail to their vehicle," Morin said.
That call was placed at around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, and the hikers were found early Monday morning by the volunteer organization Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit (RMRU).
"Just after midnight, members of RMRU located Brian Wong and David Wilmer huddled on a large rock," Morin said. "They were cold, but unharmed and subsequently escorted to safety."
Humber Park is about 6,500 feet elevation between Tahquitz Rock on the east and Suicide Rock on the west, above the mountain towns of Idyllwild and Pine Cove, which are home to about 3,800 residents.
Idyllwild is in the San Jacinto Mountains, south of the San Gorgonio Pass and about 110 miles driving distance from Los Angeles.
