Loopy Water

Just a bit here about water on the Loopy Loops. There is abundant surface water, its been a flowing summer so most creeks are running. I’m not going to list all the water sources as there are too many to count. I will point out a couple dry sections.

From Start in town, thru Hartmans is dry till we cross S. Beaver Crk @~mile 12.

From Beaver Crk/RD726 @~mile 28.5 once we climb out of this valley I’m not sure of many water sources till we hit Little Mill Crk@~mile 46. Although it is very possible there are some small creeks that I’m not remembering.

From there water crossings happen fairly often, I’d dare to guess every 4-5 miles, so water is pretty easy till…

The last section from Fossil Ridge/Beaver Mcintyre, is mostly dry once you do the big last climb out. There is water sometimes next to the CT Spur Singletrack in the creek along Lost Canyon Rd, also sometimes a tiny spring next to trail in trees. After that the high sage road to Signal section is dry, but also pretty fast, so town and cold drinks are not far away.

I’m taking three bottles, 1/.75L, 2/.65L, so 2.3 Liters as my water capacity. 2 to 3 Liters should be plenty for most, some could do as little as 2 bottles, but do some research!

If anyone has specific questions about water or anything else, feel free to let me know.
