The county search and rescue team reported the team used a wheeled litter to get the woman back to the Lava Camp Lake trailhead.
They say Mary Johnson of Sioux City and her 78-year-old husband, Pete, were about three miles south of the trailhead, and she used another hiker's cellphone to call about 9: 15 p.m. Tuesday.
The rescue team reached her about 1:30 a.m. and got her back to the trailhead about 4:30 a.m.
Her illness wasn't described. She told authorities she would seek medical care on her own.
