    Thanks for the advice. Guthook is only for the long trails. Len Foote was on AllTrails, but it was inaccurate. There is plenty of water along the route though.

    I just came back from a five day trip with four in my group. I had a Sawyer Mini with a gravity bag set up. Took about 10 minutes to fill 8 water bottles. I love the set up! No complaints at all.
