We were up in the area after doing West Fork Oak Creek the day before so decided to check out Kelsey Spring and Babes Hole Spring. Short hike but very pretty in the area with lots of Ponderosa Pine some of it park like. Kelsey Spring is less than a mile from the rim which drops about 300 feet to the spring. There was a trough completely full with very clear water which was fed by a source up the hill and fed down by pvc pipe.

After checking out Kelsey Spring we dropped another 400 feet to Babes Hole Spring which also had nice clear water. Babes Hole Spring had rock enclosure covered with wood planks but water coming from the bottom formed small pools in the creek to filter from. Took short break and then headed back to the trail head. Great area to explore and need to come back for an overnight.
