SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. — A 54-year-old off-road motorcyclist from the Denver area was found lying unresponsive on a trail near Breckenridge on Wednesday afternoon and later died, the Summit County Rescue Group said.

The group responded to a 911 dispatch to the North Fork of the Swan Jeep Trail about five miles from Tiger Road.

The man was with two other people, one riding an all-terrain vehicle and another riding an off-road motorcycle.
