A Troy woman had to be rescued while hiking in Otsego County over the weekend.

It happened on Saturday in Cherry Valley.

State police say the woman fell from a waterfall, down about 150 feet into a gorge near County Road 50.

Rescuers had to hike about a mile through a wooded area and along a creek to find the hiker. She was a 32-year-old woman from Troy.

The woman was flown to Albany Med for treatment. Police say she has since been released.
