Default Water/Snow availability in the Rexford/Nesakwatch Area

like the title suggests. Anyone have an idea of snow levels in the basin, or if there's non-sewage containing water up there? Trying to decide if 3 days is possible up there.

There is a creek crossed on the way up Rexford trail, possible it may be dry, and apprently tadpoles were observed swiming in the water in one of the reports I saw some years ago.

This creek is at a fairly low level compared to most of the hike.

And it could be dry ... Next best bet is the Neskawatach River itself.

In the basin, even if there is snow left, it will be so dirty by now that a few paper coffee filters would be of inestimable value

Thanks guys. When I was last up there, it was looking dry. I wonder how long those creeks would last this season with the lack of snow.

Dru - good point. A fancy tea strainer could do the trick as well. Reusable too.
