The Mabeline Trail is a very challenging 2-3 week hike through a remote backcountry area, where water is very scarce. It should only be attempted by experienced desert hikers. A GPS-enabled emergency location device (such as inReach or ResQLink) should be carried at all times. Informing friends/family of your route and timetable is highly advised. The information provided here is only for advisory purposes. There is always a realistic possibility that water will not be flowing from an indicated source. Full responsibility for such a difficult hike lies solely with the individual.
