A cyclist was recovering Sunday after she was airlifted out of Annadel State Park with injuries from a crash.
Crystal Smith, 32, of Santa Rosa crashed on Canyon Trail near Lake Trail on Saturday, State Parks Supervising Ranger Neill Fogarty said.
Bennett Valley firefighters were called to the park at 6:20 p.m.
She was experiencing neck and upper back pain, trouble breathing and other injuries that led paramedics to opt to have her taken from the park by helicopter, Bennett Valley Fire Lt. Travis Browne said.
The Sonoma County sheriff's helicopter flew Smith to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. She was recovering at home Sunday.
