A female hiker is recovering after a fall from a Maui trail.

Officials say it happened at around 12:26 p.m. Monday near Hana Bay.

Fire crews found a 34-year-old woman who had fallen about 15 feet onto rocks at the water’s edge.

She was hiking with two other friends on a trail leading to the Hana lighthouse when she slipped and fell, officials said.

The woman was conscious and sustained injuries to her head. She was treated by paramedics at the scene and taken to the Hana Ball Park, where she was transferred to a medevac helicopter and flown to Maui Memorial Medical Center in stable condition.

The group was from out-of-state and is living on Maui temporarily for work, officials said.
