Trailhead: Park at the Sheep River Falls day use area 36kms west of Turner Valley Between Sandy McNabb Campground and Blue Rock Campground. Sheep River Provincial Park.
Description: The trail follows the west side of the Sheep River gorge with excellent views of the foothills and Rocky Mountains. Views of the river pools and eddies along the Sheep River are beautiful and very inviting. To bad the water is to cold for swimming. The Sheep River runs crystal clear and is home to wild Cutthroat Trout, Bull Trout and Rainbow Trout. You’ll need a fishing license to try your luck. Check regulations for catch and release.
Sheep river falls may be the nicest set of water falls located near Calgary. Deer, elk, bear and bighorn sheep are often seen in the area. Indian Oils is located east of here and worth the hike or short drive. Note: Gravel road access only.
