Hello Hikers!

Well it appears summer weather has returned. There is a heat advisory through Wednesday, and it doesn’t appear as though its going to cool down much after that. The US Forest Service has closed Three Sisters Falls and Cedar Creek Falls through at least Tuesday – they will reassess the closure on Tuesday and may continue it longer depending on conditions.

Remember to take it easy during the hot temperatures. There’s nothing wrong with staying home for a few days, but if you do go out pick a short hike and head out early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the hottest part of the day. Carry more water than you think you’ll need and please, please, PLEASE leave your dogs at home if you decide to hike in the heat!! Here’s a list of some good coastal and beach hikes where you might find some cooler temps, but always check the forecast before you go.

Visitors to the Walker Preserve Trail in Santee are being warned about an incident last week where several women report a man exposing himself to them on the trail. The suspect is described as white, around 5-feet 11-inches tall, 190 to 210 pounds with black, wavy hair. Any victims or anyone who sees any suspicious behavior should contact the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
