Three Sisters Falls is part of the Cleveland National Forest and an amazing feature of San Diego County providing a wonderful scenery for observing nature and the surrounding scenic vistas of Cuyamaca, Sunshine and El Cajon mountains. However its best feature it is know for are the 3 dynamic waterfalls it is named after. During the winter and spring seasons, or during a wet year when the Cuyamaca Reservoir is full, Boulder Creek can experience heavy water flow, resulting in higher than average falls. In prime conditions, the “middle sister” is impressive, with water falls cascading 50 feet into a kidney shaped pool estimated to be about 10 feet deep. Be careful trekking this area - the years of water runoff has left the large boulders incredibly smooth, making slips and falls common. Expect water levels to fluctuate with the season. During much of the summer, or in times of drought, the waterfalls and pools can be more of a trickle and a pond, with little in terms visual appeal or swimming potential. If hiking in the spring months when nature is in full bloom, poppies and wild mustard light the horizon with color, while peregrine and prairie falcons prepare their nests for incoming chicks.

Tips for Three Sisters:
Plan Your Trip. Write a full account of who is in your party, what is your route/where you are traveling and when you plan to return. Give it to someone who knows you will be gone this can even include checking in with the Rangers.
Check Conditions. Always double check the local conditions, weather conditions and fire danger levels. Check with the Ranger District for the area you plan to visit.
Dress Appropriately. Sudden weather changes are common in the backcountry. Be prepared!
Carry Water. It can be very hot and dry, and the only drinking water available is located at the staging area. For a full day’s hike, you should bring at least one gallon of water in moderate temperatures, and more in heat. Do not drink from the streams.
Bring Snacks. For longer hikes, a supply of trail snacks will help you maintain your energy level.
Stay on the Trails. The natural resources are fragile. Their survival, and your safety, depends on correct trail etiquette. Don’t cut switchbacks – proper trail maintenance depends on proper trail use.
Carry a First Aid Kit. A first aid kit can make the difference between an enjoyable hike and a potentially serious situation.
Three Sisters is a Wilderness Area. Hike with caution, and be aware of your surroundings. Mountain lions, poison oak, bees, rattlesnakes and ticks are present.
Pace yourself. Travel at a reasonable speed, rest often, and drink lots of liquids
If You Get Lost. Stay calm and don't panic. Stop and try to figure out where you are. Use your head and not your legs. Three of any thing—such as shouts, whistle blasts, reflected light from a mirror—are a sign of distress. Carry a rescue whistle and small mirror for emergency use. Note: Cell phones do not always work.
