Four hikers had to be helped out of Catalina State Park Saturday afternoon according to Anne-Marie Braswell with the Golder Ranch Fire District. 

The call for help came just after 1 p.m. 

Authorities from GRFD, the Pima County Sheriff's Department and the Southern Arizona Rescue Association helped with the rescue.

According to Deputy Cody Gress with PCSD, one female patient fell and hurt her arm.

Braswell said that all four patients decided not to go to the hospital. 

Given unseasonably warm temperatures, hikers are encouraged to start early.
