The ~26 miles of the PCT that includes the Hat Creek Rim seems to be
infamous for a lack of water. I find this rather confusing as there
is a natural spring (Lost Creek) within ~700ft (~400ft of height) of
the trail. Lost Creek feeds two PG&E power houses and appears to be
thousands of gallons per minute. However, it is ~6mi from Old
station, so, that leaves another ~20mi to Crystal and Brown Lakes.
Am I missing something? Not drinkable? Too many boulders?
