Indefinite Closure

Access to the trails and roads on Hot Springs Mountain, the highest point in San Diego County, is now restricted. We drove out there yesterday (March 12th) and were greeted by a stern guard at the entrance who now packs a gun. He said the Los Coyotes Reservation tribal council has closed the reservation to all non-Indians.

This has been in effect for possibly two months and will last indefinitely. He gave no reason for the action and suggested we check the Reservation's web site.

At present the site offers no information.
