Big Sheep Creek Back Country Byway

50 miles - 3 hours

Big Sheep Creek Byway lies near Dell, MT, 24 miles north of the Montana-Idaho state line. Along the length of this solitary route, you may pass only two or three cars. As you journey beneath the high rock cliffs of Big Sheep Canyon, look down into clear, deep pools of spring-fed Big Sheep Creek. The Rocky Mountains have hidden this southernmost point of Montana well, and it remains unchanged for those willing to explore the back country on the Big Sheep Creek Byway.
