Three hikers are trapped in snow in Tasmania's highlands, requiring a helicopter-aided rescue.

Late on Monday, police said a chopper was on its way to the Cradle Mountain Wilderness Reserve to help the trio, who are uninjured but caught in snow.

"National Park staff are walking in to them and will look at assisting them to get out of the area," police said in statement.
