June 30, 2017 (Cleveland National Forest) -- The San Diego County Sheriff's Department is partnering with CAL FIRE and the U.S. Forest Service for a public safety video about hiking in the East County.  To watch the video, click https://vimeo.com/223528992.

Despite recent record hot temperatures in the county's mountain and desert areas, people continue to put their lives in danger by hiking Cedar Creek Falls (pictured on the right) and Three Sisters Falls.

As of June 15th, Sheriff's ASTREA has responded to 51 rescue calls to these hiking trails. In most cases, the hikers did not bring sufficient water and underestimated the rugged terrain.
