Mountain Biker Hospitalized After Crash On Trail Off Paradise Road

By Sam Goldman, Noozhawk Staff Writer |

A mountain biker was hospitalized with major injuries Saturday afternoon after he crashed while traveling down the Snyder Trail in the mountains north of Santa Barbara.

The biker, a man in his mid-30s, “was approximately a mile from the bottom, and had an accident and went over his handlebars,” Santa Barbara County FireCapt. Dave Zaniboni said.

At around noon, the county Fire Department, the U.S. Forest Service and sheriff’s Search and Rescue Teamresponded to the crash site, and carried the man down the rest of the trail, Zaniboni said.

From there, he said, a helicopter from the county air support unit in Santa Ynez airlifted the biker to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, where he was treated for major injuries.

The Snyder Trail is just off Paradise Road and is heavily used by mountain bikers.
