    Default Anyone have a water status from NRA headquarters to Damascus? (Grayson highlands)

    Planning a section hike next week and wondering if the shelters and other sources have water. Thank you

    Just finished my hike, so here is what I found:

    Water was really scarce but there were enough sources. At Trimpi shelter I could scoop from a cup but had to be careful not to stir it up. Hurricane mountain shelter had decent water at the stream. Old Orchard shelter had very little water, not deep enough to dip so had to put the cup under the weak stream out of the pipe. I didn't check the water source at Wise shelter, but the stream north of it had lots of water. Thomas Knob was almost dry, had to wait for the weak stream to fill up the cup so I could fill my bag. I did not go to Whitetop mountain (or further south) but heard the spring by the road had good flow.
