i thought you were just trying to start conversation Dave. i knew that you already knew more than i do about finding water<g>.
that's a good question. i know shorter hikes around reliable creeks & rivers, but i'm not thinking of anything right off that crosses or follows that much reliable water.
some people have said that there is a lot of water crossing the Foothills Trails", but i'm not familiar w/ it my self.

I didn't phrase my question correctly. I was looking for a 50 to 100
mile backpacking trip where water won't be too much of a problem. I
am afraid right now that some section of trails may have 15 to 20 mile
gaps between water sources and I wanted to avoid those and find a
trail that had water every 6 to 12 miles.
