Water sources between Clouds Rest and Half Dome
August 05, 2012 10:19PM
I'm usually backpacking in the springtime, but I'm taking my brother next weekend and we'll be heading over the top of Clouds Rest and then to Half Dome. Is there any water sources this time of year between the two? Don't want to lug a bunch of water over Clouds Rest if it isn't needed. Thanks in advance...

You will find water at the junction of the JMT and Clouds Rest trail in Sunrise Creek. There is a spring just off the Half Dome trail but I've never tried to find it myself. Plan on filling up on water at Sunrise Creek when you hit the JMT.

Thanks! Sometimes these creeks disappear in late summer, just wanted to check. This is much better than getting too much before Clouds Rest.
