New Hampshire conservation officers say a woman who was given bad advice to take a trail down Mount Washington had to be helped off the mountain.

Officials say 69-year-old Dee Schardt of Sea Girt went up the mountain Saturday morning with a friend on the Cog Railroad.

At the top, she was given bad information that the Jewell Trail was an easy trail down. She started down before noon, but had no food, water or lights. Around 8 p.m. Schardt was reported missing.

Conservation Officers hiked up to her and assisted her with her decent, several times giving her piggy back rides.

They arrived back at the Cog Railroad parking lot around 11 p.m. Schardt was exhausted but did not seek medical attention.
