GOLD BAR, Washington – A 22 year-old woman was rescued after getting separated from her hiking group Saturday, August 2, on Blanca Lake Trail near Gold Bar.

Snohomish County Search and Rescue responded to a report of the missing woman around 8 p.m. The helicopter rescue team located her 20 minutes up the trail from her group. She did not have any serious injuries.  She was hoisted out of the area by the helicopter due to the steepness of the terrain.
