The PCTA stated on April 3 that "Barrel Spring is NOT running, local PCTA
maintainers have been notified and will attempt to repair it soon."
I was at Barrel Spring on March 20th. Water was NOT running from the pipe into
the trough. Hikers can follow the pipe up the hill (20-20 yards) to the spring
and get water right from the source.
Even if all that fails, there is water less than 4 miles north on the PCT at
San Ysidro Creek, or 4.5 miles east of Barrel Springs on Montezuma Valley Road
S22 in Ranchita.
