I have on my bucket list to complete the AZT so I had to start somewhere and this was it. I was hiking North to South but actually ended up starting 2 miles North of the actual trailhead. The random directions of unmarked right turn about 3 mi. down the road led to the trail but I think is was the last two miles of section #30. No biggie. Started hiking about 11AM, ran into a nice couple of ladies and their dog about 1/2 a mile in. Ran into another nice lady and her dog after crossing through one of the campgrounds. And that would be the last human I saw for the next three days. Section #29 was a beautiful hike. Stopped by Navajo Spring and topped off one of my water bottles. Good, clear water. I literally filled it up at the faucet. Strange. I did filter it through my Sawyer. Filled up again at Van Deren Spring. The water was surrounded by reeds so I had to wade in a little. As a result the water had a good amount of gunk in it but tasted ok through the Sawyer inline. I ended up hiking about 12.5 miles the first day and finished it up the next morning. Thanks for a great start.

Once I found the literal faucet it filled my 1L bottles relatively quickly. Water was clear.

Water in both the lower and upper tanks. Surrounded by reeds so it required getting the feet wet. Not sure of the fill rate as I just dunked my bottles. Water was a little chunky but filtered just fine
