We made it to the 3.75 mile mark and ran out of water. We only crossed 2 streams and both were dry. There was not a stream that ran alongside the trail. On the positive note the views incredible and it was very lightly trafficked.

This was a beautiful trail. We did it in two days, but it could easily be stretched to three. The views were fantastic, especially once you get into the alpine parts of the hike. There's a stream that can serves as a water source that stays close to the trail for the first six miles or so. A lot of the last stretch up the mountain is exposed, so expect it to be bright and windy.
