New Hampshire Fish and Game officers said a Massachusetts woman is safe after falling and injuring her leg while hiking near Mount Eisenhower.

Officers said 43-year-old Monette Verrier of Reading, Mass., was hiking with friends Friday afternoon on the Edmands Path when she slipped on wet, exposed roots.

Verrier’s companions called for help.

Conservation officers and rescue workers met Verrier on the trail about 4:45 p.m. when Verrier and her friends were about 1.2 miles in from the trailhead.

The group reached the trailhead in Crawfords Purchase about 6 p.m.

Verrier was taken to the hospital by a member of her hiking party.
