MOOSE PASS - A 25-year-old Girdwood woman died while on a hiking trip on a Kenai Peninsula trail.
Troopers took a call at 9:14 a.m. Thursday reporting that 25-year-old Sarah Thorn had died while hiking on the Devil's Creek Trail.
Chugach National Forest spokeswoman Mona Spargo said Thorn reported suffering from a migraine headache before she died. She was about 8 miles from the trailhead and 2 miles from the Devil's Pass cabin when she was stricken.
Thorn's companion called authorities from the trailhead at Mile 39 Seward Highway.
Troopers sent a helicopter to investigate and recover the body.
