Girl Scout and Montecito Trails Remind of Hiker Safety
By an edhat reader
Today it wasn't as hot as it was last week but it was so very humid on Romero Trail that I was drenched in sweat and out of water by the time I reached the peak. I knew I'd be fine since I was just turning around and heading back to my car. Unfortunately, this hasn't been the case for other hikers. Did you know there have been 5 heat related rescues just this week?
Inspired by the Park’s family wish for more trailhead signage about the very real dangers of Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke, Girl Scout Ambassador, Abbey Gaston is leading the charge to make their request a reality. Today Abbey, along with Montecito Trails Foundation, hosted a table at the Romero trailhead to talk to users about the very real danger of hot days on the trails.
