Hiking and backpacking in the Sierra Nevada is a dream for many, an obsession for some, and a pleasure for all. These "hikeSafe: It's your responsibility" pages are designed to help you have an enjoyable and safe trip.

The Mono County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team is here if you need us, BUT, we would prefer that you never need to call on our services. We hope this presentation will help accomplish that goal.

Each of us is generally responsible for ourselves as we wind our way through life. On a hike or backpack it is YOU who must take responsibility for the safety of yourself and your companions. We hope that the tips given here will help you be successful.
