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!
