IDLEYLD PARK, Ore. – A Klamath Falls woman was rescued near Susan Creek Falls on Wednesday night.

Shortly after 8:00 pm on March 4, 2020, 911 dispatchers received a call from 40 year-old Corrine Marie Compton reporting she was lost in the Susan Creek area. Compton told dispatchers she had lost the trail and was slipping on the side of a cliff.

Douglas County Search and Rescue was activated and located Compton approximately a mile and a half east of the Susan Creek walking bridge. Compton was found to be beneath the North Umpqua Trail.


Searchers were able to extract Compton and walked out with her to the highway. She was uninjured and did not require medical attention. She was later transferred to her vehicle.

Compton was hiking with a 12-week old blue nose pit bull which was wearing a red harness and a purple leash. The two became separated during the hike. Searchers were unable to locate the dog at the time of the rescue. Anyone who locates the dog should contact Douglas County Animal Control at 541-440-4471.
