Injured Hiker Rescued from Living Desert Trail

Firefighters rescued an injured hiker from a Palm Desert trail last week. The hiker was found on a trail near the Living Desert around 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4. The injured hiker contacted the fire department for assistance around 1:30 p.m.

According to Cal Fire, the hiker was about a mile and a half from the start of the trail in difficult terrain when he suffered a medical emergency. The rescue occurred at the 47000 block of Portola Avenue in the Living Desert Reserve. He was airlifted to the hospital with moderate injuries.

Desert Hiking Can Be Dangerous

Hiking the desert trails is a popular activity this time of year. While the weather during winter and spring is certainly preferable to the sweltering heat of summertime, hiking can still be hazardous. 

“Hiking is always risky, but it is especially dangerous if you are alone. Always bring a friend with you, no matter how experienced you are,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
