Hello to all. We are planning a trip this week with an overnight stay at the Overmountain Shelter. Does anyone know the current condition of the water source?

The spring that was next to the shelter trail moved a couple years ago during the drought. The spring is now below the forest road when you are on approach to the barn. There are additional sources down along the road. And a huge source at the turnout/gate.

All the relocations should be finished. Nothing major. The trail was routed from the steep ridgetop and up&overs to switchbacks and hillside.
