They report they inadvertently left Sky Top ridge trail and were on the Kingsford Ridge trail.
They hiked down Kingsford Ridge to the overlook to Lake Mansfield and decided the route down to the lake was too dangerous and backtracked back up the Kingford Ridge trail but lost the trail. They were instructed to back track until they could relocate the trail.
After a few occurrances of this, they made it back to Skytop. Because of their fatigue, a Stowe Mountain Rescue member met them on Skytop with food and water and guided them back to the Stowe Mountain Rescue truck parked at the Rob George Saddle and drove them back to Trapp Family Lodge.
