Trail Overview

Steep ascent through dense forest to the top of Sheep Mountain. Tight switchbacks and mild off-camber keeps this trail engaging, although not particularly difficult in general conditions. 270 degree view from the top features several of the peaks and valleys in the area. This in-and-out trail makes a nice side-trip from Lead King Basin, or stand-alone trip from Marble.
