    Yeah, HMS camp is very well-marked. Pretty much impossible to miss. Always good water there as well. Obviously no one is going up there right now due to the Apple fire. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t leap the ridge and work its way towards Thousand Foot Ridge or down into the valley where Mineshaft Flat camp is. That’s a really beautiful area.

    Plenty of water at Jackstraw. Was just there about 2 weeks ago. Flowing strong.

    I just camped at HMS about 2 weeks ago. The spring is only about 100 yards (if that) down trail from the camp sites. There are about 3 or 4 good campsites (flat and picked clean), everything else is steeply sloped mountain side so it’s an unusual campsite in that respect (most campsites are on a bench or in a saddle). Water is flowing strong. The sign for HMS is right on San Bernardino Peak Divide trail and is well marked. You won’t miss it. Great camp site for the views and solitude.

    I believe trailfork spring has some water. I saw a trickle 2 weeks ago when I was up there. The best place right now to load up on water when hiking to Anderson Flats is at Jackstraw springs. It’s flowing well there. After that, it gets pretty dry. Once you’re at Anderson flat, the nearest totally reliable water source would probably be high meadow spring.
