The Union Leader reports:

TUFTONBORO — Conservation officers assisted a hiker to safety after she fell on a trail in wintry conditions, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said Sunday.

Patricia Tarpey of Gilford, her husband and their dogs were hiking with some friends near Mount Shaw when she fell and injured her right shoulder around 1:20 p.m. Saturday, Fish and Game said in a release.

Trail conditions were a mix of snow and ice when Tarpey fell and members of the hiking party called for assistance, according to the release.

Conservation officers helped Tarpey make her way back down the slick trail for about two miles until she reached her car around 5:45 p.m., Fish and Game said.

Temperatures were in the mid-30s Saturday with snow and sleet. Fish and Game said Tarpey and the other hikers were equipped for the conditions with warm-weather and climbing gear.
