A female mountain biker has been taken to hospital after injuring her leg on a trail in Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park.

Kelowna firefighters were called by BCAS to assist them in reaching the injured biker who was on Lost Lake Trail near the end of Stewart Road East at about 1 p.m.

Central Okanagan Search and Rescue was also contacted and requested a helicopter to attend the scene.
