SAN DIEGO -- Some popular local hiking spots will be shut down for the rest of August due to extreme heat.
San Diego Parks announced the closures on Twitter. They include El Capitan, Hellhole Canyon, Mt. Gower, and Wilderness Gardens. All four will reopen at the end of the month.
Meanwhile, Agua Caliente and Vellecito will be closed for the entire summer. Those areas will reopen Labor Day weekend.
