While Search and Rescue were headed out, fellow riders were able to help the injured rider far enough down the trail that he was able to begin walking on his own along with his family.

Search and Rescue reached the rider with a wheeled litter by 1:05 p.m., provided medical assistance and took him to a nearby forest service road, the county said.

The biker declined to be transported by ambulance.
