The hikers were in the Whitehorse Mountain area near Darrington about 6 p.m. and said they couldn't find their way out, Snohomish County police spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.
The Sheriff's Office sent its SnoHawk 1 helicopter and other officers to search for the group. Shortly before 8 p.m. the group called 911 dispatchers in Skagit County to report they had made it to safety, Ireton said.
