Year round act of kindness? No, in Section A, this is a seasonal activity
designed to coincide with the time when the majority of PCT Thru-hikers will
pass thru the area.

Water caches in Section A are historically in place by the third week of
April and will be maintained through May, and into the first or second week
of June.

Have a safe hike!
