Overview: This short, easy, and partly "off trail" hike starts at the Byous Butte primitive campsite area TH(see driving directions below).
You will start hiking at the described rock cairn TH marker and proceed back out of the campsite area onto FR172. Turn Left(NE)on FR172 and hike up FR172 and then downhill on FR172 to a wash drainage entrance (Note: left turn here not right turn) at the low spot in the road at GPS Waypoints N33 22.037 W111 12.019 (this is approximately 0.41 mi on FR172 from your beginning TH Start location).
As noted, you will turn Left into this wash drainage and continue hiking up this drainage to a total of 0.81 mi arriving at what I have named obvious & perennial "Hidden Springs" at GPS Waypoints N33 22.219 W111 12.251; This perennial "Hidden Springs" provides water for the local wildlife during the hot and drier months of the year.
