A Whiting Ranch hiker with a head injury is safe after firefighters drove him out of the wilderness park in an off-road vehicle, authorities report.

A team on the ground and a helicopter were dispatched for the rescue operation shortly after 2 p.m., but the hiker refused the airlift and was instead taken out in the all-terrain rescue vehicle, Orange County Fire Capt. Marc Stone said.

No additional information was available about the hiker's condition.

Whiting Ranch, Lake Forest's wilderness park, encompasses approximately 4,300 acres.
