Idaho search and rescue crews worked to rescue a woman who was stuck at Jump Creek Canyon.

Deputies say a 23-year-old female was hiking with friends around 8 p.m. when they went up to the viewpoint on Jump Creek Canyon Ridge. The woman got scared, and officials say she may have had a panic attack. 

The Marsing Fire Department attempted to reach the woman but was unsuccessful.

Idaho search and rescue teams got to the scene around midnight and worked for nearly 3 hours to help the woman down. Rescue workers say the 3 hikers don't need medical attention.

Steep terrain and pitch black conditions played a big role in the difficulty of reaching her. Rescuers want to remind hikers to stay on the trails.
