Sheep Falls

  • Posted on

Sheep Falls is a beautiful, scenic waterfall with rapids that flow through a narrow basalt chute on the North Fork of the Snake River near Island Park. Sheep Falls provides a pleasant hike and a well-maintained trail. This hike is rarely crowded. Sheep Falls is upstream from Upper and Lower Mesa Falls. Expect a 2hr+ hr hike. Near the waterfall, you can find fire pits that past visitors have made. Campfires are permitted, however, they are dependent on current fire conditions. If you could like to camp here, contact Targhee National Forest to make sure it is ok. The rocks that surround this channel provide good traction rather than being slippery. Also, you can find formations in the rocks. These formations come from waterfalls in the past. They seem like little pots filled with water.
