It's scary to go hiking alone, but the Boulder County Parks and Open Space Rangers are always looking out for your safety.

On Wednesday, August 19, a 65-year-old female was hiking the Rainbow Lakes Trail near Nederland, Colorado when she fell and sustained a leg injury. According to a press release from Boulder County, "Rocky Mountain Rescue Group provided further medical care and a litter evacuation to the Rainbow Lakes Campground."
