If you're headed east from Rhineland, be sure to stock up on water here. You won't have another good opportunity for water until Treloar, 20 miles away. There is an Amoco mini-mart and Loutre Market in McKittrick, but they're hard to get to from the trail.

we hope to be open weekends July 13 and on
will have water available and some foods. It was a challenge to renovate the Merck but breathing life into her is another challenge. Hope you can visit or see us on themerck.com Thanks

I wrote it in another post but Loutre Market in fact is very easy to get to from McKittrick trailhead. On west side of tunnel under Highway 19 is short spur trail, from there just pedal across highway to Loutre. 3 minute pedal at most. Of course if Mercantile is open then just go there.
