Gallatin County Search & Rescue Volunteers Rescue Moutain Biker in Leverich Canyon
On Sunday shortly after Noon, a 21 year old male crashed his mountain bike in Leverich Canyon south of Bozeman. He was 1 to 2 miles up the trail from the parking area and was able to call 911 using his cell phone. The man was able to give a good description of his location and his condition to rescuers who reached him in less than an hour. He was transported out of the hills using a specialized wheeled liter similar to what hunters use to haul out game. He suffered an injury to his right arm and shoulder from impacting a tree when he fell.
Be careful out there!
