I personally did this one the other direction. There is not any water along the Derrick Trail until you reach Horton Spring. For this reason I did the Derrick Trail first with the water i carried, then resupplied @ Horton.
edit to add: Chumley is right. there is a nice little camp spot on the East Side of Horton Creek with rock benches, chairs and tables. I will see if I can find the GPS coordinates to it but I don't know if I saved them. The East side of the creek will definitely give you peace and quiet.
