Hikers rescued near Rattlesnake Ridge

Two hikers were rescued Saturday after they got lost near Rattlesnake Ridge near North Bend.

King County Search and Rescue said the call came in around 2 p.m.

KSCO Marine Rescue was able to use a snowcat, a new vehicle given to them by the military, to rescue the two Seattle men, ages 22 and 28.

The rescue took two hours – without the snowcat it would have taken much longer.

The hikers were cold and wet but in good condition. The Sheriff’s Office said they were not prepared for a hike.

They were brought down at around 5:30 p.m.
