Overview

Description

The Forest Service Website says that the North Sheep Mountain Trail "is more of a navigation exercise than a trail." While this isn't exactly accurate this trail is a badly eroded gash quickly becoming a stream bed in some places. However, it is fun for mountain biking (down).

From a large cairn on Johnny Park Road, head up hill briefly before an almost continuous downhill run almost all the way to the North Saint Vrain Creek far below. When you get to a trail intersection turn left onto the Button Rock Trail.

Getting forecast...

As of the flood of 2013, this trail was closed (a notice at the trail-head). Significant erosion and wash out down below. Its practically impassible down below, the side of one of the hills washed across the trail. Its pretty cool to check out, but this fun trail is out of commission. Nov 7, 2016
