The female had been hiking on Skyline Trail in Tahquitz Falls west of Palm Springs for several miles when she was bit.
A CHP helicopter located the patient. A sheriff's department helicopter hoisted the patient to a nearby landing zone at La Mirada Road near Sunny Dunes Road in Palm Springs where paramedics transported her by ground ambulance to an area hospital with moderate injuries.
