    Default Water conditions at Mt Algo Lean To

    Has anyone been up there recently? Weve had some serious heat these past couple of weeks and, despite the heavy rains, Im concerned the stream there may have dried up.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Below is the link to the CT-AMC water status spreadsheet. It is updated weekly during the summer hiking season by the ridgerunners. Only changes from the existing status are made. For Mt. Algo, the status of "Flowing Well" is dated May 6th. That would mean that as of last week the flow there remains good. Generally, that water source remains good unless we have a prolonged drought.

    Mt Algo Shelter is on a big creek, I couldn't see it going dry too often, I could be wrong though. I was there around October 2nd and it was flowing 5"+ deep

    My wife is out on the A.T. in Connecticut right now.
    It's nice knowing that there's water available for her.
