Woman spends night on Papago Park trail

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A hiker spent Wednesday night on a Phoenix parks trail after she couldn't make it down the mountain.

A Phoenix Fire Department spokesman said the woman was not hurt, but simply couldn't find her way down the trail at Papago Park in the area of McDowell Road and North Galvin Parkway.

Rescuers had two choices Thursday morning: lower her down on a steep angle or raise her to the top for a helicopter rescue, the spokesman said.

No other information was immediately available.
