Boulder County rescuers assisted an injured hiker Saturday afternoon off the Royal Arch Trail in Chautauqua Park in Boulder.

A news release from the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office says the Boulder County Communications Center was notified about 3:10 p.m. of an injured hiker. The reporting party, who was hiking with the female, said the woman had sustained minor injuries when she slipped on rocks while hiking on the trail.

Rescuers from the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group and American Medical Response contacted the injured 20-year-old woman from Boulder and assisted her down the trail to an ambulance at the Bluebell Shelter. The rescue took about an hour.

Rescue personnel from Rocky Mountain Rescue, American Medical Response Ambulance Service, rangers from City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks and Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the incident.
