Fat Man here. No not "That" Fat Man, The first Fat Man Walking......

Heading to Daleville, VA for my annual two week section hike and was wondering what the water supply was like from Daleville through the Shenandoah National Park. Any info on that section would be most gratefully appreciated. :-?

If you don't get info too quickly, try contacting the ATC or the Shenandoah National Park backcountry office.

Either of these should have real good information that is up to date.

one data point for SNP - water at the Hightop Hut Spring is flowing good - est. 2 to 4 liters per minute but the water at the Hightop Summit spring while present was not showing any particular flow - it still looked good but there was no obvious flow - maybe 4 or 5 inches deep in the spring box. I was up there tonight and remembered you were interested in SNP water among other places.

I hiked from Black Horse Gap to Dripping Rocks. The shelters had water (except for CoveMtn). Don't depend on streams that "seasonal"
