Hiked the trail at the beginning of September. The weekend was very hot, with no water in the river, or anywhere along the way. Camped in an open area not far from Tonys Cabin. There is a spring for water on your way to Tony's cabin (about half way to Tonys cabin from the campsite). There was water available at the spring, which we filtered.

Keep an eye out for ribbons at the river crossings, made it easy to stay on the trail.

Great backpacking event, though if I was to do it again I'd wait for a cooler weekend.
