"The hiker is experienced with no known medical conditions. It was the man’s first time hiking in the area, Sprong said."

Sounds like he got lost on the trails, being that his car was at First Water, but he ended up at the Canyon Lake TH. Not that such a thing couldn't happen to me, but I have a hunch that he didn't research/prepare for his hike well enough, or have proper equipment to navigate out there. Glad he's okay though.

My thought was the same started from first water finally made it to Canyon and went to the Marina to get some help getting back to his car or call a friend from a pay phone
