Section Hiking from Flagstaff to Pine this summer~ 130 miles. Besides the lakes out side of flagstaff, blue ridge resovior, and the creeks north of pine, are there any longer stretches without water? And where would be a good place to cache water, and food around 60-90 miles in. Going SOBO. Assuming bearbagging will be required most of the way? Thanks for any info

When they re-open the forests and you can complete the hike, Moqui CG area has easy access for a cache. The trail is never super-far from FR3 and SR87, so access points are plentiful.

Yeah, I've been praying to the RainGods for some decent monsoons before beginning the hike at the end of August. Will either get lucky or have to re-route. Thanks for the info
