A 42 year old hiker who was part of a large hiking group became separated from them in monsoon type rain conditions and pea soup fog while coming back along the Dog Mtn Trail on Mt Seymour.

 

The hiker was eventually found by a NSR field team but the group was spread out all over the place with no manifest done before hand of who was on the hike. It took some time before NSR and RCMP could ascertain that not only the subject was safe but that the whole group had returned.

 

NSR is sending a member to talk to this group to go over trip planning and emergency situations.
