Best done as a two-day backpack, this wide-ranging loop trip is still within the scope of an ambitious day-hike. Only about 10 percent of the total distance covered involves difficult terrain, and most of that is in the first half. If you’re backpacking, be sure to bring a 30-foot length of cord for lowering your pack down one or more dry falls. Several dozen bighorn sheep make their home in the Pinyon Mountains, and you may have a close encounter with one, as I did, in Bighorn Canyon. Since there was no easy escape route, the startled ewe clawed her way up a sheer granite wall to reach a safer stance on the steep, rock-strewn slopes above. When threatened, bighorn sheep prefer this kind of “escape terrain,” on which they’re more nimble than any other large animal.
