    Hunter is spring fed, though the main springs (which dwarf matrimony) are miles upstream near the head of the canyon. They do not run dry.

    Negro Bill also has springs which do not dry up, though they are more diffusely spread out.

    As you approach the springs in either, you get into the big time poison ivy zone. Be careful! Don't do it if you react strongly to poison ivy.

    Both those hikes are of a reasonable length that you can pack in enough water, even if the springs are running low you shouldn't need much.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?
