    Default Water at Shooting Star Shelter

    Despite what the 2009 End-to-end guide says, there is no water pump at Shooting Star. The water source is either a dismal little pool just above the pump pipe, or down the ravine in the other direction (east) about 400 meters.
    Everyone has a photographic memory. Not everyone has film.

    Have had the same experience over the years with lack of water at SS. There is a stream which the Long Trail crosses one mile south. Several years ago, while I was staying at SS, an athletic and friendly hiker actually hiked the one mile and back and brought back enough water for five of us to share - he was a hiker AND a trail angel!

    Jay Camp and Laura Woodward are the last shelters with good water. You can easily fill up at either one and it should get you to the end.
