    Default Water in the Smokies

    Just wondering if anyone has been on the AT in the Smokies in the last week or so. I'm curious about the water sources since I will be taking a week to hike starting on Friday.

    I was at Sheep's Pen Gap last weekend and the water supply (the trickle?) was as good as any of the other times I've been at this camp site.

    a month ago I did the park SOBO and carried no more than 1.5 liters. Ran out of water at Rocky Top, which may have been my fault for not refilling somewhere earlier...

    No man should go through life without once experiencing healthy even bored solitude in the wilderness, finding himself depending solely on himself and thereby learning his true and hidden strength.

    There website states that the spring at Mollies Ridge shelter is dry and any water sources 1.5 miles south of there is also. Birch Springs backcountry site # 113 is good and so is the spring at Russell Fields shelter.
