ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Six hikers missing on the Lost Man Loop trail near Aspen have been found safe.
The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office was called Tuesday after the hikers were reported overdue. They were found about midnight after they wandered off the trail.
The sheriff’s office said in a statement Wednesday that roads in drainages leading to the river are often mistaken for the official trail route.
