    Default Water Source on Forney Creek

    Are there any drinkable water sources (springs) on the Forney Creek trail? If so, how close are they to campsite #74?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Are you against using water treatment (tablets, drops, filter, or UV) for some reason?

    There is a long thread here

    where we discussed water treatment methods..

    No, just used to having the springs on Hazel.

    I know this is a debated topic, but I treat everything I drink. I like Aquamira. It doesn't have a bad taste (to me) and it's worth taking the extra 10 minutes to treat it, rather than risking getting sick and ruining a trip.

    Just my opinion.

    There is no springs near 74 that I recall. We had to filter out of Forney Creek
