ACADIA NAT’L PARK — Around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Bar Harbor Police received a call that two ill-prepared hikers were lost in the darkness in the vicinity of the Gorge Trail between Cadillac and Dorr mountains.
Rangers responded to the summit of Cadillac, hiked down the Gorge trail and found the pair. The Texas residents had set out just before dark without flashlights.
The hikers were escorted back to the summit and driven back to their vehicle on the loop road around 8 p.m.
Rangers advise visitors to be aware of the early times of sunset at this time of year.
