Have never been to McKinney Spring, and have only been to Tornillo (specifically at intersection with Big Yellow Arroyo/Cottonwood Ck/Menagerie Spring) once.

Are both very reliable water sources?

I believe I've read that McK is pretty infallible.

And when I was at this spot in Tornillo in '07 there was plenty of water, but that's a pretty small sample size.

Thoughts?

Last time I was at McKinney was Nov 01, 2012. There was plenty of water. I believe it is fairly reliable.
