Sheep Creek

Sheep Creek Sunrise    by Erick Huish    ©Eric Huish (4 May 2005

Directions: Drive about 20 miles up Spanish Fork Canyon on US 6 toward Price. Turn left (north) onto Sheep Creek Road (FR 051). (That's about 1/2 mile before the Dairy Fork road which goes off to the right [south]).

Description:  Birding is good all along this road. About 20 miles up the canyon, the road forks to go either to Strawberry Reservoir (right -- about 8 miles away) or to Diamond Fork Canyon (left -- about 2 miles away)
(See write-up in "Merrill Webb's Top 20")

Nearby:  Strawberry Reservoir and Diamond Fork Canyon.  The Dairy Fork Road goes off south from US 6 about the same place as the Sheep Creek Road goes north.
