The first call for help came in around 11:30 a.m. for an injured hiker along the Barclay Creek Trail, north of Baring. A man reportedly broke his foot and needed assistance, sheriff's Lt. Steve Dittoe said.
Rescue crews received a second call for help just before 3 p.m. Crews were told that the man was suffering from leg cramps and was having trouble making his way down Lake Serene Trail, west of Index.
Crews located the hiker about an hour later. He declined additional medical assistance once he and rescue crews reached the trail head.
