Man rescued after losing way along Jacob’s Ladder Trail


DRAPER, Utah (ABC4) – A man was rescued by crews Monday morning after spending the night near Jacobs Ladder Trail.

The man was discovered mostly uninjured, but suffered from minor scratches from a scrub oak tree. Jacob Ladder’s Trail is described as a “very difficult dirt wilderness trail,” according to Draper City Officials.
