There is an old logging road that
follows the valley bottom towards
Campground. If you want
to complete this loop it may require
an overnight stay in the back
country. Deer, Elk,
are abundant in this area. Night
skies here rate #3 on the
official web site for fee's, opening
and closing dates.

Local campgrounds include
River Falls and

east of here. Views of the
pools and eddies along the Sheep
River are beautiful. The crystal
clear pools are very inviting, to
bad the water is to cold for
swimming. The hike along Blue Rock
creek offers excellent views of the
Blue Rock valley.
