Third Stream Crossing probably has water. Not too sure about Comanche, haven't been there yet. Jim might know.

Thanks, Taco. In a real pinch I guess I could check Comanche and if it's dry, just head to Third Stream Crossing. I can post my findings for others.

I'll check with Jim. Not sure if he's back from his latest trip yet.

Third stream:  water.
Comanche:  Dry at last report.  I haven't verified that personally.

Thanks so much, Jim. Looks like I'll get a longer walk; not a bad thing at all.

Well, and if you do find water before 3rd Crossing, so much the better, right?  Particularly in the vicinity of the falls, I would think you might find water before 3rd Crossing.

Yes, indeed! The sooner I find some water the better.

I just wanted to say "thanks" for the water information. I just got back from a great, quick overnighter.  Took Icehouse Canyon to the Saddle and then on to Comanche (dry, as reported) and Third Stream Crossing.  

I ended up at what I think was Third Stream Crossing. There weren't any signs, so I'm not positive; but I was at a point where the trail clearly traversed the stream.  Plenty of water and a beautiful spot. Short distance but steep climbing/descent with a full pack--a great work out!

PostPosted: Fri Oct 16, 2015 10:08 am    Post subject: Online Water Report Resource? Reply with quote

Hi, does anybody have an online source for water availability for various trails in So Cal. I had found a resource a few years back but have not been able to find it again. I remember at the time some updates were more reliable and recent than others, but curious if anybody has a link to share.

FYI, I did call the Forest Service for water availability information but still curious about the online resource.

Thanks!

I'm not aware of a ŕnf / San Gabriel mtns specific water report website.  Perhaps you where thinking of the  PCT Water report pctwater.com

Might have been. It was awhile ago, but I thought I remembered seeing locations that weren't on the PCT. I'm probably mistaken. Thanks for the reply.

FYI - The North Backbone to Baldy has a bit of snow on it. I could only see up to Pine, but I'm pretty sure there's even more snow beyond.

I did Baldy using the ski hut trail yesterday, went up the right side of the bowl, and then descended the bowl on climber's left. There was snow down as low as the Icehouse Canyon trailhead, but it looked to be melting rapidly at the lower elevations. There was knee-deep powder in some spots in the bowl, only a few inches in others. As I exited around 1 pm, I found that half the population of Los Angeles had decided to drive up to Manker Flat and play with disks and toboggans.

Howdy Ben,

Thanks for the snow report -- hopefully this next system will bring in more snow for the bowl.

Might even have to bring snowshoes  Smile

Did you use any traction up or down?

Miles of smiles,
Ellen

Hi Ellen -- Nice to hear from you. I used microspikes on the trail, then switched to crampons at the ski hut. But realistically the whole thing was doable with boots. There was an excellent boot track going up the bowl.
