      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.
