Coconino County Search and Rescue were called to the Mount Elden area Wednesday morning after receiving a 911 call from an injured and stranded hiker on the Elden Lookout Trail. Rescuers responded to the top of Mount Elden at around 8:30 a.m. and found the hiker on Elden Lookout Trail below the intersection with Sunset Trail. The adult male hiker indicated he had a leg injury after slipping on the trail and was not able to hike any further. Once on scene, the hiker was prepared for a litter carry to the top of the mountain where he was transferred to a helicopter at approximately 11:30 a.m. He was then transported to Flagstaff Medical Center for further care.
