Effective immediately, all trails in the Santa Monica Mountains will be closed through Labor Day after a hiker died in the oppressive heat, authorities announced Saturday night.
Malibu Search and Rescue responded to several heat related rescues on Saturday — three before 11q a.m. — including one hiker who perished. Further details were not provided.
The message to all who want to hit the trails this weekend is simple: Do not hike in this heatwave.
