    Default Smarts Mountain Tentsites

    I'm headed out for a weekend hike and was wondering if anyone had recent info on the water source for the Smarts Mountain Tentsites/Firewarden Cabin.

    Default Mike Murphy Spring

    If you are filtering you may be able to suck some water rom the spring located down the Daniel Doan (blue blazed) trail that heads down the mtn from the firewarden's cabin. It's pretty poor, especially in the summer. If it were me I would carry water from the stream at the trailhead just in case the spring is dry. There is a stream at both the NOBO and SOBO road crossings of the AT.
    Everyone has a photographic memory. Not everyone has film.

    There was no water on top of the mountain a month or so ago. I'd suggest carrying water, too.

    Since it's been pretty dry here in New England that's pretty much what I expected to hear. Carry it is then.
