Four hikers stranded on the lower slopes of the San Gabriel Mountains above Eaton Canyon were safely located Tuesday, authorities said.
The four were part of a party of six that first called for help around 7:35 p.m. Monday, when one of them fell while trying to climb to Coyote Falls at the end of a steep trail above Eaton Canyon Natural Area, a park in Altadena at the foot of the mountains.
The four hikers were found around 1:25 a.m., about 500 feet from Coyote Falls, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Jose Larios. They were escorted out of the area.
Two members of the party were found uninjured around 9:45 p.m. Monday and were walked out of the area by rescue teams, he said.
Crews from Altadena and Montrose Search and Rescue and the Los Angeles County Fire Department were involved in the search, for the hikers, who were aged 21-30 and all from Los Angeles, Larios said.
