On September 27, 2021, at 8:34 am, Gallatin County Dispatch received a call for help at the Upper Triple Tree Trail. While returning to the trailhead, a cyclist was going over rough terrain and braked hard, causing them to fall forward over the handlebars resulting in multiple injuries. Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue, Hyalite Fire, and AMR were dispatched to the trailhead.
Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue resources arrived on scene with the cyclist approximately half a mile from the trailhead. Search and Rescue members assisted Hyalite Fire and AMR with bringing the injured biker to the trailhead via one wheeled litter. AMR subsequently transported the individual to Bozeman Health for further evaluation.
Sheriff Dan Springer would like to remind recreationalist that accidents can happen to anyone, no matter the experience level. Always recreate with a friend when possible and carry a reliable source of communication should anything happen.
