Injured mountain biker rescued from Phil’s Trail


Deschutes County Search and Rescue responded to Phil’s Trail Friday afternoon to help an injured mountain biker.

The call came in just before 1 p.m., with a report of a 52-year-old Eugene woman who needed help getting back to the trailhead parking lot.

Nine SAR volunteers and one deputy responded to the area and found the woman less than a mile down Kent’s Trail from the parking lot.

A medical team assessed her condition and she was loaded into a wheeled litter.

SAR got her to the parking lot, where Bend Fire medics were waiting.

The woman refused an ambulance and said she planned to seek further medical treatment on her own.
