I'm pretty sure I'll be heading out after lunch this Friday going Southbound from 19E.Would appreciate any info on the water sources along this section.It's been kind of dry during Oct. in Greene Co. and Little Laurel shelter was almost dry a few weeks ago.As with many other sections a few springs flow even during dry spells and this section has a few good springs and some that could be dry also.Any info much appreciated....:)

I haven't been by Cherry Gap Shelter between Iron Mt. Gap and Unaka Mt. in a while but I know the water source there is very reliable.

The concrete boxed spring at Deep Gap a few miles north of Beauty Spot was flowing strong as of yesterday.

The first 7 or so miles from Indian Grave Gap to Erwin are pretty dry - the shelter water source was a puddle last week. When you're about 2 miles from Erwin until hike beside a good stream all the way to the campground but by then you're almost done.
