    An injured hiker has been rescued after Maryland State Police dispatched a helicopter to retrieve her from the forest.

    Police said the hiker, a 41-year-old woman, suffered injuries Friday in a rugged stretch of the Frederick Municipal Forest, a 7,000-acre watershed owned by the city of Frederick that sits outside city limits.

    State police dispatched a helicopter after rescuers encountered treacherous conditions trying to reach the hiker from a steep slope.

    The helicopter lowered a trooper to the scene and hoisted the hiker to Frederick Memorial Hospital for evaluation.

    Frederick County fire and rescue personnel also participated in the rescue.
