I am planning a nine-day, four-man trip on the Highline Trail, East to West, starting on July 21st, 2021. Does anyone know where I can find good intel about water sources on the Eastern side of the trail, esp. between East Park Res. and Long Peak Res.? I have been told that there is water south of the trail around Manila Park (about 12 miles from TH at Hwy. 191), is this the case in this dry year?

I just hiked the Highline Trail. On July 3, I found plenty of water in the off trail stream in Manila Park. Seemed to be farther than 0.3 miles, though the GPS waypoint found online in other places was spot on. Should last throughout the Month of July. No telling if it will last in August given the low amount of snow that fell last winter. There was also a decent flowing creek, maybe 2 miles before the dirt road walk towards Leady Peak, so I didn't have to go to Hacking lake for water.
