A 65L backpack is a good size for the trail.
Hiking boots are obviously best to go hiking in, but a good set of joggers is OK or a good quality set of sandles are fine too. Keep in mind, that there is a lot of boulder hopping, creek crossings (you may need to take your shoes off) and ruggered terrain, you need something with good grip that is extremely comfortable.
Yes. There is water available on the trail. It is recommended that you take water purification tablets with you, but quite often it is not needed. On the Thorsborne Trail Map, it is listed where water is available.
2Ltrs is a good amount to carry but remember to stop and fill up when ever you can. There are many freshwater little steams along the way!
