Sheep Creek Hills HP

Elevation: 7,826 ft

This peak is not in the book.


This peak is the high point of the Sheep Creek Hills. Rick Baugher’s trip report follows.

On 7/15/13 I approached from the southwest by driving east up Bear Hollow Road. This is a well graded but unsigned county road crossing private rangeland. As the road enters the Sheep Creek Hills it becomes eroded, especially so as the track turns north to gain elevation. I parked around 7200′ and hiked north. After crossing the gate into Caribou National Forest, ascended cross country up the brushy SE slope to gain the summit of Sheep Creek Hills HP. At the com towers, chatted with two Rocky Mountain Power techs who had driven their service truck. Topic of conversation: watch out for snakes in the area. USGS Montpelier Canyon
