A day hike to a stunning waterfall in a place you don’t expect it. You’ll find plenty of parking, plus undeveloped camping at and near the trailhead. This is an excellent early-season hike that you can safely take after the Crow Creek opens in mid-May. The trail is in excellent shape all the way, and it’s obvious the Forest Service is taking great care to make this route a nice hike. The waterfall is truly remarkable!

First, let me state that the guide is incorrect on two fronts. #1, the mileage to Sheep LAKE is about 4.5 miles from Lower Coffin Lake (not two miles as reported). #2, The map is incorrect. Sheep Lake is not to the east as it describes. Sheep Lake is just north of Coffin Lake. I wish these guide books would take the time to get it right. Coffin Lake is wonderful. Lots of cow patties, lots of mountain bikers, but a peaceful trail and a great place to camp. The side trip to Sheep lake is well worth it if backpacking in for a few days.
