MOUNT BAKER-SNOQUALMIE NATIONAL FOREST — Rescuers were heading Monday night to help a female hiker in her 20s who was reportedly injured while in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest just outside of Mount Rainier National Park, East Pierce Fire & Rescue said.

The hiker and her partner were heading up a trail to Summit Lake. The injured hiker’s partner left her there to summon help and drove down to a store on State Route 165 to gain cell phone service.

“The patient is not believed to have life threatening injuries” East Pierce Fire said on its online blog.

Search and rescuers did find her late Monday night, and found she was suffering from an ankle injury. She was expected to be carried out early Tuesday.
