I've been considering doing that hike for quite some time and did some plan=
ning for it a while back. Attached below is an email I received from Bert T=
rammell who is (was) the SFWMD representative that oversees DuPuis. I spoke=
to him on the phone as well. The only water available is surface water whi=
ch you'll need to filter/treat. The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Co=
mmission produces a map (for hunters) that shows the FT in the J.W. Corbet =
WMA and also access roads (grades) that cross the FT. Copies were available=
at the Youth Camp. I was thinking that with prior preparation, and a 4 whe=
el drive vehicle, one could cache water at select locations in advance. Of =
course retrieving the containers on completion. I was at the Youth Camp abo=
ut 3 weeks ago and can confirm it was indeed wet.
Please keep me posted on how the hike goes, I'd still like to do it, but Oc=
t is already full for me.
Best of Luck

No additional wells have been put in. The only manual-type well we have is=
at the Governor's House site. It works only part of the time and its wate=
