      Hey there,

      Hope everyone is doing well. Anyone know how the water flow at High Creek Camp is at the minute?

      Appreciate it,

      Water at High Creek Camp is nothing to worry about.  It’s very reliable.

      Take a look at this map:  https://caltopo.com/m/5EJT

      The most convenient water source is in a side canyon just east of the camp area.  It’s marked “Spring/Side Creek”.  The camp area is on the main branch of High Creek.

      If for some reason the spring were not running, just go down the main branch a little ways below camp.  You’ll find water just above High Creek Falls.

      The water at High Creek Camp is pretty reliable, and you shouldn’t have to worry about it.

      Take a look at this map:  https://caltopo.com/m/5EJT

      The creek forks right about where the trail to the peak crosses the creek.  Water is usually in the right branch of the creek.  The right branch is smaller, but it’s the one that has water. Sometimes you have to go a little ways up the right branch to find water.

      The camping area is on the west bank of the left branch of the creek.

       

      If ever there were not water up the right branch — which I have never seen completely dry, you can always walk down the creek toward High Meadow Falls.  There is always water just upstream of the falls.
