Fire personnel rescued an injured hiker Friday afternoon on the Waimoku Falls trail in Oheo Gulch, also known as Seven Sacred Pools, in Hana.
A fire official said the 40-year-old man, who was hiking alone, suffered an ankle injury at 6:10 p.m. Friday a mile up the trail.
An engine company hiked three-fourths of a mile into the trail before meeting the injured man.
Bystanders rigged a stretcher and used it to carry the man.
He was brought down the trail to waiting medics.
He refused transport by medics and sought treatment on his own.
