Bloody Basin, Sheep Bridge Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Sheep Bridge at end of trail is an impressive sight. Bridge spans wide Verde River with a 476-ft. walkway. Original bridge, built in 1943, was rebuilt in 1989 to look like the old bridge. Today the bridge is used for pedestrian traffic only.
A hidden concrete-enclosed hot spring is purportedly located in thick brush just north of the west side of the bridge. (Author’s note: We didn’t know the location of the hot spring at the time of our visit, and couldn’t find it. Later, online, we found the location. We hope to return someday to get pictures.) Side trips at Wpts. 02 and 03 lead to interesting archaeological sites. Side trip at Waypoint 03 also has a long cliff area with petroglyphs."
