View Full Version : Front Royal to Harpers Ferry Springs/Water

I am trying to find out if the springs from Front Royal to Harpers Ferry have water in them or are they dry? I don't want to get stuck on the trail with no water in some spots.

The Shenandoah Nat'l Park springs from the northern terminus to Pinefield Hut are all running , and should be doing better after the rainy pattern of this week.
The last two springs ,@ Blackrock Hut and Calf Mountain Shelter ,this last one isn't technically in SNP , are always a dribble by August anyway.

Loft Mountain Campground is also a reliable source of spigot water after Pinefield . With the recent rain and the possibility of more in the next 72 hours you should see some improvement at Blackrock and Calf Mountain.

Hope this much info is helpful in planning your hike.
