    They need to close the trail in the summer because its obvious people do not know that hiking in the afternoon is not a good idea and they ought get a bill from the county for not using common sense

      Exactly! We in Ramona pay an annual EDU fee to RMWD to help pay for CalFire services. Most of the people rescued or treated are flatlanders from down the hill who do not pay a dime. It's time to hit them in the pocketbook for services rendered and then maybe, just maybe things will change. But you can't fix stupid.

      I propose they start requiring hikers to post a $100 deposit before issuing a trail permit. Hopefully that will encourage them to get out on their own whenever possible.

    Just shows are stupid and dependable people are. Stupid people are going to ruin trails like they did with guns.

    It's a shame that responsible hikers can lose access to beautiful trails because of people with no common sense. They should definitely start charging for the cost of a rescue, the taxpayers are paying for the lowlander's stupidity.
