WEBER COUNTY, Utah — A woman had to be flown out of Skull Crack Canyon near the Causey Reservoir after she fell and broke her leg Wednesday morning.

Her injuries were not serious, but a helicopter was required to reach her location, which was two miles from the trailhead.

She was then flown to an ambulance at the trailhead and taken to the hospital with a fractured leg.

The Skull Crack Canyon trail has been extremely popular lately because of salmon coming out of the reservoir and going into the tributary that feeds it.
