    Water between Pierce & Eisenhower?

    The AMC White Mountain Guide mentions a stream in the col between Pierce and Eisenhower. Is this a reliable source in general? Anyone know its current condition?

    I suppose Mizpah Spring Hut is probably the nearest alternative, which I noticed from Rocket21's post is now open for self service.

    Thanks!

    FWIW, last fall we found lots of water there, in a moderate dry spell.

    Its usually a reliable stream fed by drainage off of Eisenhower. Its not a "spring" (i.e. water suddenly appearing from the ground), so its up to you on your choice or to purify or not to purify

    Edmands Path:

    The WMG says there is a "small brook" near the treeline on the Edmands Path. A search here reveals an opinion that it's "unreliable."

    Can anyone comment on its usual reliability, and maybe even on its current status? We're headed up in a li'l bit, and I can't remember from younger days.

    Bring all you need, or bottle & filter?

    Thanks,

    --M.
