The Sheephead Creek area provides one of the most unusual hikes on the Montana side of the Bitterroots. The loop traverses wildlife-rich upland country, terrain quite different from the deeply glaciated fare found elsewhere in the eastern reaches of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, and affords the discriminating hiker an opportunity to see lots of interesting country without retracing a single step along the way. You can hike this loop in either direction, but the counterclockwise route is less physically demanding.
