    Default Water NY? NJ line to the Hudson

    Checking to see if anyone has been out on this section and how the springs are running. I checked the shelter forums but there aren't current postings.

    thanks in advance!

    This section is very dry. Reliable sources, like the Sunfish Pond runoff is dry. Mohican has running water (1/4 mile north of the AT on Camp Rd). Not sure about north of Blue Mtn Lakes Rd. We had a good rain today, not sure if that will change things on this section.
    Simple is good.

    Christy,

    I should have paid closer attention to your Title line. Not sure where your located now, but the radar weather for that region is showing rain over most of that area... which doesn't guarantee it will do anything for the springs in the short run.

    Drought conditions now exist in every state along the AT, severe to moderate in all states GA to ME border. Mother nature has a way of snaping back to the other extreme, the 2011 thrus may be in for a wet one.

    The forecast for this week seems to indicate a real drenching is on the way for the entire east coast.

    I don't know about Wildcat shelter. NY - You can get water from a pond a few miles south of Fingerboard. There is water in a brook up the mtn north of the Palisades Parkway.
