Does anyone know if there is flowing water/springs on this trail that you can use for purifying?

street parking and walk around the elementary school grounds, up a walk, and cut through the playground along the fence and the trailhead is pretty obvious. quick ascent up to radar road and then a fairly monotonous up and down ridge hike until near the end. the sights along the way are ok. lots of scratchy ferns. the final ascent is where this gets a hard rating. definitely more fun at the end and probably for more experienced folks. took 7 hours total including breaks at an easy pace.
