Hi, Im going to be starting just before Mount Moosilauke on the 12th, and continuing north and was wondering if there were many water sources in this part of the trail because it doesn't look like it on the map? I usually go through 2 liters of water pretty quickly if it is really hot so Im not quite sure how much water to bring any suggestions?

You've got a hut every 8 miles or so - no problem.

Potable water at each hut (free) lemonade, hot tea was $1 when I came through in June.

(2005) I ran completely out of water somewhere before climbing Mt. Garfield, so I had to get water from a "pond" off the left side of the trail. It was fairly nasty looking water. That might be a good stretch to carry a little extra...
