Planning on a small section hike from Winding stair gap to the NOC.
Has the water situation improved with the recent rains and snow?
Any details on marked water sources would be appreciated.

Thx for sharing the info. Several sources for AT info like the Thru-hiker's Companion, which shouldn't be assumed is useful only for thru-hikers, and I'm confident, online sources, will offer info on likelihood of AT water sources running during different seasons and situations. Overall, the AT is a regular water available LD trail so H2O isn't a huge issue particularly going into late winter/early spring and as noted with the recent precipitation and snow in the last couple of months. It was needed though. PCT is getting some well needed snow this yr too.
