New Jersey – Water Spigot Off – Pochuck Mtn Shelter

New Jersey
Water Availability



The water source for the Pochuck Mountain Shelter (NOBO mile 1,353.9) is a water spigot on the back of a vacant house just Trail north of the Lake Wallkill Road/Liberty Corners Road crossing (NOBO mile 1,353.5). The water spigot has been temporarily shut down due to a leak. The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) in this section is in a populated area without good natural water sources.  Hikers are encouraged to carry extra water when hiking between High Point State Park and Pochuck Mountain (NOBO miles 1,339.8 to 1,355.4).

We will update this notice when we have more information.
