Hikers rescued on trail west of Colorado Springs.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department and El Paso County Search and Rescue helped rescue two hikers stranded in North Cheyenne Cañon Park on Wednesday evening, the agency tweeted.

The female hikers called emergency responders from a cellphone. Crews found the two about 7:48 p.m. after trekking for nearly an hour past the Mount Muscoco trailhead west of The Broadmoor, firefighters tweeted.

The hikers left the path after one of the women slipped and fell, dislocating her shoulder.

Crews transported the injured hiker in a basket. The other hiker suffered cold exposure but managed to walk out, firefighters said.
