Hello & Good Morning.

I am a sectional backpacker who will be heading out on the trail soon (August) starting at Lehigh Gap & finishing at Port Clinton (N->S). Planning on 3 day trip. Taking 4 liters of water with me (Two Nalgene 32oz + 2 Liter bladder, Katadyn pump). Seeking information on water availability at the following shelter areas:

Outerbridge shelter
Lehigh Furnace Gap
Bake Oven Shelter
New Tripoli Campsite
Allentown Shelter
Eckville Shelter
Windsor Furnace Shelter or Furnace Creek Campsite
Pocohontas Campsite.

According to the book, some of the springs around these shelters may be dry in August. Trying to plan my water availability. Any information helpful.
