Officials Close Cedar Creek Falls

To protect public safety, the Cleveland National Forest is closing the San Diego River Gorge Trail and Cedar Creek Falls.

In a news release, the Forest Service said the area and trail will be closed from July 9 through November 8, 2011.

The Forest Service can reopen the area prior to November 8, 2011 if deemed appropriate.

The closure comes after 16-year old Joseph Meram of El Cajon slipped off a trail alongside the bluff at the remote area east of Ramona in East San Diego County earlier this week.

And last weekend, emergency crews transported 10 or more injured, dehydrated or heat-exhausted people out of the remote area.
