The trailhead was the one for the swinging bridge. We hiked the Sheltowee trace up to where we camped. The first water source was at a small but tall rockhouse about 1 mile in. All the rest of the water was from the falls comming over the top of the REALLY BIG rock house by indian stair case. There were alot of well used campsites on the top of the ridge over the rockhouse. I also don't remember getting water anywhere else that weekend.

Most of the water I used was from the Rock House just past the backside of the Indian Staircase. I also got water once in the walk up from the trailhead. I am not sure of the trailhead, but it was about 4 miles into the backside of the stairs. I treated most of my water, but dipped and sipped at least once from both sources.
Just thought I would throw that out there. But if you want to find out whether your water treatments works, this would be a good real world test.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
