SALT LAKE COUNTY -- Two hikers are home safe after being rescued from Mount Olympus late Tuesday night.

A 24-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman hiked to the top but took a wrong trail on the way down and got lost in a steep ravine.

They called for help but weren't sure where they were.

A helicopter found the two then dropped off some rescuers nearby. They had to rappel down to the hikers. Then they rappelled the rest of the way off the cliff with the hikers in tow.

No one was hurt.
