This short, easy, and partly "off trail" hike starts at the Byous Butte primitive campsite area TH (see pic set & hike descriptions) and proceeds up FR172 then off trail through a wash/drainage for a short distance to what I have named as "Hidden Springs". After just posting the GPS Route for this new hike description, I noticed that the HAZ- MY TOPO Map has it labeled as "Canyon Springs" (which was not noted on my Mapsource & TOPO! map software). Anyway, this small perennial springs serves as a welcomed lifeline for the local area wildlife during our dry and hot months of the year and is also a nice little hike to consider when in the area!

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
