Never rely on water caches!!! Beware of contaminated water. Purify backcountry water.
Send email updates to water@pctwater.com or phone/text 619-734-7289 or 619-734-PCTW [voice mail/text only, no one will answer]. Mileages and waypoint names used in this water report are from Halfmile’s PCT maps [www.pctmap.net]. Please send photos & videos of water sources, fires, passes, Poodle Dog Bush, and stream creek crossings to our Facebook page called "PCT Water,Fire,Passes,Fords Update Group"
Take fire safety seriously. Alcohol stoves start fires – go stoveless or carry a stove with a contained fuel source and a shut-off valve.
Water sources with blue text [marked with * or **] have historically been more reliable. Sources marked with ** are more likely to have water year-round than those marked with a single *. Water described as seasonal, usually dry, early spring, etc. are less reliable..

A641.4PO043**Mount Laguna town, lodge, store
[4/10 mi SW of WR043]
Spigot at Mount Laguna Visitor Center was on.1/2/18John
The easiest access to Mount Laguna is to follow the sign directing hikers down the trail through the Burnt Rancheria CG and then right on the Sunrise Highway. You will pass a restaurant, an outfitter, and another restaurant on the way to the Mount Laguna Lodge. Non-purist hikers can continue past the lodge to the Desert View Picnic area to rejoin the PCT, bypassing 1.2 miles of the trail, or you can backtrack on the highway to the campground.

Visitor Center water is ON.2/3/18Warner Springs Monty
A642.1WR042Burnt Rancheria Drinking Fountain by CG jct
3/21/18 (Scott) : Couldn't find the supposed "closed until 2019" sign at burnt rancheria, so I don't know what to say about that. The gate is still barred entering the campground from the road, restrooms and showers still closed, spigots still on.
3/16/18 (Unnamed) : Fountain is on.
3/9/18 (Dave) : Camped there Friday 3/9/18. Water on (for logging?). 1 Lu open near site (15?).
3/7/18 (Derek) : Campground closed until spring 2019 due to logging.
3/5/18 (Jason) : Water fountain is off; “sink” next to fountain w/ standing water needing to be filtered; of course mt laguna town is nearby off trail.
Access on left 50 yards after you walk below a picnic table on the left or from the road N of the store. Three water sources here: 1) On SW side of loop at end of road [nearest PCT] is a small, two car parking pad. To left & forward a bit is a heavy metal pipe with faucet in small concrete circle, right next to a big tree. This faucet reported to be insulated and should be on year round. 2) Drinking faucet next to restrooms. 3) Sink in restrooms. Water is off in the restrooms during the winter.
A642.6WR043**Desert View Picnic Area2/3/18 (Warner Springs Monty) : Water Faucet at the SE corner of the use area is on
Bathrooms have water, including a faucet above the urinal. Sinks are off. Drinking fountain off.

[7/10 mi SW]
3/2/18 (Deb & Rick) : Water off due to broken pipe.
2/3/18 (Warner Springs Monty) : Long walk, but water is available year round.
1/5/18 (Ilana) : Water available from faucet at site 46 and from pump at site 65. But not sure if this was temporary. I would check that they are still on. Prior to my trip the ranger told me the water was shut off entirely in the campground. I was surprised to find these two working with a good flow. Not all sites had water, these were the only two I found to be flowing.
3/2/18Deb & Rick
Leave trail near wooden overlook. Total walk to the campground and back to the faucet is one mile round trip.
A647.8Oasis Spring [1/2 mi down]
A648.7WR049GATR faucet [1/10 mi W of PCT]3/24/18 (David) : GATR facet still good.

2/3/18 (Warner Springs Monty) : Faucet ON.
1/11/18 (Meditation Man) : GATR faucet flowing strong.
1/6/18 (Brad) : faucet is flowing well.
1/2/18 (John) : GATR faucet was on. Note that GATR faucet is road accessible from Pioneer Mail Picnic Area (1.5mi, instead of 4mi by trail) and similarly from Kwaaymii Point (2.5mi by road). We ran into someone who said the GATR faucet is sometimes off - surprising because it appears to be attached to water mains.
GATR road in WP guidebook is now a trail. At Penny Pines there are 2 trails to the W toward Sunrise Hwy. The S trail is the most direct. Both trails are marked with Carsonite posts with a Noble Canyon Trail decal. Go 100 yards straight; then 50 yards across Sunrise Hwy to trough and faucet. Water system is filled by portable generator and subject to outage.

3/21/18Vegan Hiker
The 3rd Gate water team is insulted by having to clean up hikers’ poop and toilet paper. Please practice “leave no trace” principles.
The 3rd Gate water cache is on private property 1/4 mile E of the PCT down a side trail with “Water” sign. It’s a lot of work getting water out there, so take only what you need to hike 9.9 miles to Barrel Spring. Practice “leave no trace” principals: NO FIRES, carry out your trash and toilet paper, bury poop 6 inches. Abuse of the property (unburied poop, fires, leaving trash, etc.) may lead to the cache being closed. Only approach Grapevine Ranch in an emergency. Vehicles are not allowed on the ranch without prior permission from owner.
A1191.2WR091BUnderground Cistern [6/10 mi E]
Follow the dirt road leading from the water cache about 4/10 mile to where the road turns right(E) but go left (N/NW) on an old unmarked trail for 1/10 mile to the underground cistern containing untreated water (a rope and bucket are supplied).

A trail has been cut about 1/4 mile South of Chihuahua Valley Rd that will bring hikers down to the tank so we don't have to do the RD walk both ways.
0.2 mi E to driveway 31440 Chihuahua Valley Rd, then 0.1 m N to private NEW water tank above house. "water in tank should be filtered. If no water in tank there should be water on back porch - go through hole in fence next to water tank and down the trail to house there is a netted porch to keep the bugs off, and a shower out side." per Mike Herrera at the house. he is very eager to meet and assist hikers, they are welcome to stop by his place.

B4137WR137B**Tule Spring & Fire Tank
[Tule Canyon Rd, 0.25 mi SE]
3/22/18 (Jay D & DoubleTap) : Great flow of clear water from faucet. Be sure to close the valve tightly to minimize leaks.
3/10/18 (Deb & Rick) : Faucet/hydrant has plenty of water with forceful flow. Use partial opening to limit waste.
2/1/18 (Yogi00) : Seems to be plenty of cold, clear water from hydrant (faucet?) on downhill side of road opposite tank. May need to lightly tap the valve to loosen.
12/1/17 (Trail Angle Mary) : The fire tank was empty and there was no water coming out of the hydrant. There was a series of seeps (no running water) and a “pool” that was mostly algae and had less than an inch of liquid on the edge of the hillside SE of the fire tank. Water quality coming out of the seeps is poor. Again, I suspect this is at least in part a function of the drought. The stream below the water tank had a small amount of water flow (I would estimate total flow of less than a gallon per minute) with a very heavy algae load. I followed the stream up to the seep supplying the bulk of the water and, again, would estimate less than a gallon per minute as the flow rate in the stream. Algae was present even at the source.

In 2017 multiple hikers got sick shortly after drinking water from the creek below the fire tank at Tule Spring. Both reported filtering the water, but not treating it chemically. Report of feces found in the fire tank, be sure to filter and treat water from this source.

B4139.5WR140Guzzler3/22/18 (Jay D & DoubleTap) : Plenty of water in guzzler but it's far down and there is a nasty looking film over the water along with some algae. Someone left a plastic cup next to the guzzler for scooping.
3/19/18 (Don) : about half full.
3/10/18 (Deb & Rick) : Water appears to be algae covered (green/yellow). Need to use self-provided retrieval (cup & rope?) to access. NOBO carry water from Tule. SOBO carry water to get to Tule.
1/17/18 (Shelly & Michael) : Guzzler cistern is 3/4 full. No bucket but water looked OK. no rodents as previously reported. Can reach water from end.

B4145.4Muir Wood (South) Cache, on private land about 50 feet off trail.3/22/18 (Jay D & DoubleTap) : Great flow from tank, an excellent place for a break.
3/13/18 (Uncle Crocz) : tank has lots of water (please filter) and a few small bottles for hikers without filters. Also a nice outhouse and jug type gravity shower.
3/10/18 (Deb & Rick) : Wonderful water, shadecover installed, shower functional, 2 picnic tables.
3/9/18 (Karma & Scott) : Tank half full. Filled by hand, but Mary seems dedicated so it is probably a reliable source.
2/18/18 (Trail Angel Mary) : 550 gallon water tank about 50 feet off the trail for both hikers and equestrians, and it still has water in it from when I last filled it back in May 2017. The water should be filtered before drinking or use in cooking. I installed an outhouse near the water tank on my property. The outhouse is currently functional. I am still working on an outdoor shower, which should be functional by the end of February. I will be installing a shade cover over the picnic tables, which should also be done by the end of February. I allow camping on my property, but it is limited to the cleared area near the picnic tables.
