A good portion of my AT hike I didn't treat the water. One thing I read was that hikers tended to not get sick regardless of water treatment, but that they did get sick in groups - read poor hygiene. That being said, a lifestraw is super handy, and I use iodine tabs now when the water looks sketchy. But, water from a place where no animals are above it (like halfway up a steep section of mountain) is fine for me.
