A couple of us with the Crag Rats here in Hood River use our bikes to access remote trail heads that go into the wilderness areas around us. We have a couple trail heads that take us about 15 min. to get to with a lite ready pack but in a truck it can take 45 min.

As for the helicopters, the only time we get a insertion or extraction by helicopter for the most part is above tree line. Down in the trees they really only extract the injured.
