Triple Tree Mountain Biker Rescue
On June 17, 2022 Gallatin County Dispatch received a call for a mountain biker that crashed on the Triple Tree Trail south of Bozeman. The biker had an open fracture to their left arm after braking hard and falling from their bike.
Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue volunteers from the Valley Section, Hyalite Fire Department, and American Medical Response responded to the Triple Tree Trailhead. Hyalite Fire and AMR were able to stabilize the individual for transportation. A Search and Rescue Team then loaded the patient on the one wheeled liter for transport to the awaiting ambulance.
Sheriff Dan Springer would like to remind recreationalists that even a nice afternoon biking adventure may not go as planned; so take plenty of water, sun screen, a first aid kit, reliable communication, and be prepared for any terrain and weather that could unexpectedly change.
