    Medicine Bow/Routt National Forest

Sheep Mountain is highly visible in this area and yet rarely visited in the easternmost point of the Medicine Bow Range. Though the summit of this peak looks narrow and exposed, it is actually a beautiful and scenic area. Near the top, you'll find an extended basin with snowmelt streams, wetlands, and bog mats.

The initial climb from Fox Creek Road is steep and very technical for about 1/4 mile, then just becomes a steady ascent for 3.5 miles. The higher altitude adds to the challenge of this trail and the further along the trail you get, the more difficult it is to follow the route. Most visitors, whether hikers, bikers, or horseback riders will use this trail as an out-and-back, turning around whenever suits their fitness and time commitment.

The entire trail stretches right through the middle of this mountainous peninsula and is the longest trail on the Wyoming side of the Medicine Bow Range.
